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.
Various written material giving guidance on carrying out the project, assessment issues, and the project submission is provided by the department. Students are expected to spend perhaps 5 hours in an average week on the project and to see their supervisors regularly. This course is assessed on technical achievement, as evidenced by an interim report, a formal project demonstration, and a substantial written report.
