So I'm a MS student in Computer Engineering just doing a capstone project as one of my requirements for graduation.
My advisor had been nice and assigned me a partner to work on the project. However, the partner just did many rude things to me so I told my advisor that I want to leave the team and work on my own. He agreed, saying that's understandable.
But after a few weeks, I couldn't get much work done on my project because I've been so busy with other things. Then I noticed my advisor kicked me out of our lab Slack channel (I was deactivated). I met up with him once just to update my progress, and to me he seemed mad/annoyed. I'm not sure if he was actually thinking that way because I think many professors are just not good at communicating or busy.
I felt scared so I thought I'd just only communicate with him when I have made presentable results. At the end of this quarter, I show him my finished project, and he hasn't responded. I need his signature to graduate. Do I read this as my advisor being mad at me for not making progress in the beginning and for not getting along with a team member (who was good at making himself look like a good student, and he was close to my advisor so I'm wondering maybe he made-up some rumors about me) and he just decided to cut me off?
I don't think he'd cut me off without telling me since I have an expensive equipment from his lab. I sent him an email asking for a sign to approve my project and I need this to graduate but he didn't reply and the form deadline has passed but the office gave me an extension. He's still a young assistant prof but his lab has published many papers, and he usually replies to email super quick. Do I see this as him disliking me or is he just busy? And does it happen often to not let a MS student graduate?
