Module description 

Projects are normally undertaken individually with supervision from a member of the School's teaching staff. The projects are varied in their aims and cover most areas of Computer Science. Project allocation/selection normally takes place near Easter and may be chosen from a list of topics put forward by the School/Industry or be developed from the student's original idea.

The aims of this module are to:

  • allow you to carry out a substantial task of your own choosing, in the area of Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, or Software Engineering
  • allow you to demonstrate your competence as a computing professional, and to apply what you have learnt in the other components of your degree programme
  • facilitate independent work on a substantial project, including prioritisation of different components of the project

On successful completion of this module, you should be able to:

  • demonstrate the ability to successfully undertake a substantial software project

Teaching and assessment:

Sessional: Dissertation (60 pages) and demonstration of the final system.
Supplementary (where allowed): None; the module can only be repeated.
