I have a PhD research proposal and I came up with this proposal idea while discussing machine learning with my brother who is in the same field as me and has same degrees as me.

my question is can we (my brother and I) submit this proposal for the university so we both share the research?

do we have to provide 2 seperate research thesis?

    Your question is a little bit more complicated because another author is your brother. I think it pretty much depends on your institute policy. – scaaahu Sep 28 '18 at 6:17

    @scaaahu thanks, i think it is not possible to do so based on the comments i read in the other question you mentioned before – asmgx Sep 28 '18 at 6:20

Yes, assuming the university and supervisors don't object.

do we have to provide 2 seperate research thesis?

Yes (in general). You can work together throughout, but, ultimately, both of you need to uniquely identify your individual contributions. I'd suggest that one of you takes the lead on each work package and that work package is considered their individual contribution, whilst the other provides support. Resulting publications will list both of you, but such publications will only appear in one thesis. (There's some flexibility here, since you might both include material from some publication. Your supervisors can help you work that out.)
