Tips in choosing a Thesis Topic

Hello, I have a friend that is searching for a topic for his Thesis, what are some useful tips that can help him choose a topic? He's
interested in communications and fiber-optics. I did mention Software Defined Radio would be something he could do. Any suggestions or thoughts..
thanks, joe
