|Module Title||MINOR PROJECT|
|Co-ordinator||Dr Horst Holstein|
|Semester||Semester 2 (Taught over 2 semesters)|
|Pre-Requisite||This course is for joint honours Computer Science students and third year M.Eng. students only.|
|Course delivery||Lecture||2 lectures|
|Assessment||Supplementary examination||Will take the same form, under the terms of the Department's policy|
It has proved possible in the past for joint honours students to undertake a project equivalent to more than 10 credits by finding a topic which includes elements from both computing and their other discipline; the resulting mark is then split between the two components of their degree, counting for the equivalent of 10 credits in each component. The Computer Science department encourages joint honours students to undertake such projects.
M.Eng. students undertake a centrally organised project which complements their third year studies.
2. Written Material
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 ten hours in an average week on the project and to see their supervisor once a week. This course is assessed on the written report submitted by the student. Reports must be submitted by the end of the first week in May. Students will also be required to give a presentation of their project in the form of a seminar, which will account for 10% of the assessment.
