Comments Defending a thesis can be tough. Mike Irvine has decided to make his experience even tougher — and about as wet as you can imagine. Next week, the year-old University of Victoria student will be six metres underwater off the Saanich Peninsula, at a spot where his father had a diving accident, as he defends his masters thesis on using footage from underwater cameras in education.
Irvine will be underwater when he is questioned by faculty advisers connected remotely. Anyone else can follow along through a Web broadcast he is arranging.

We have taken every safety precaution possible. I have quite the dive team with proper certifications. We have been building a dive plan, an emergency plan. An abundant amount of emergency equipment will be on the site.
There's going to be two other divers in the water. The diving community is a small world. I have a dive supervisor managing all the divers. Story continues below advertisement What is the special significance of the place where you're doing your defence?
It is the site where my dad had a diving accident. It was about 15 years ago. He had passed out underwater and then was brought to the surface and resuscitated. Was this something you had in mind as you picked this location?
It's basically about reconnecting with the ocean. This whole process of getting into my masters and live dives and everything has been a result of when I started getting back into diving in my early 20s.
I worked very much with my dad [on this project]. He has been a big help in pulling this off. It just seemed this would be the best place to do it for logistics, but also to reconnect and move forward. Did your father's experience make you uneasy about pursuing diving?
He was teaching me how to dive when I was about 12 and starting to get my certification through him. When he had his accident, I didn't touch it after that. It came about later on when I was in Greece and wanted to go on a dive. I wanted to impress my dad.
So I went and did this dive and came back and I said, 'You know what?This thesis was made possible due to research funding from the Health Research Council of New Zealand, as well as financial support from Victoria University of Wellington Master’s (by thesis) Fees Scholarship, an Izard Scholarship and a Graduate Women.
