On successful completion of this module students should be able to:
Complete a substantial piece of computing work, under the direction of a supervisor but demonstrating self-discipline, organisation and initiative.
Demonstrate an ability to gain expertise in a particular area of study largely through directed study.
duce a critical appraisal of their work, evaluating all aspects of their approach.
Students complete a substantial piece of work, under the direction of a supervisor but involving self discipline, organisation and initiative. The projects typically involve developing a piece of software from an initial statement of requirements through specification and design stages, to successful implementation and testing.
Students are expected to spend approximately 1/3 of their time in an average week on the project and to meet their supervisor regularly. This course is assessed on technical achievement, as evidenced by demonstrations, interim reports, a final project demonstration, and a substantial written report.
