Will the committee reviewing the application think: wow he didn't even tell his professor he is going for a non-thesis degree? I ask because I told one of my professors I was going for a masters and did not specify it was an M.Eng. He is likely going to write I could (since I've never done research with him) be a great researcher because of strong work ethic yada yada. He does a lot of research himself and that's why I expect this.
Will This look bad?
