Brief description

The purpose of the project, on which the dissertation is based, is to demonstrate that the student has acquired the ability to undertake and satisfactorily complete a major piece of work in computing.

Projects may originate either from the student or from a member of the UWA staff.

Work-based projects are encouraged provided that they have suitable academic content.
