|Module Title||MAJOR PROJECT|
|Co-ordinator||Mr Jem Rowland|
|Semester||Semester 2 (Taught over 2 semesters)|

|Course delivery||Other||Supervised Project. There are no lectures associated with this module.|
The purpose of the CS39030 project is to give students the opportunity to bring together the practical skills and theoretical understanding that they have acquired, by developing a complete product from the stage of specifying requirements through to demonstrating that the product does indeed satisfy those requirements. This process involves producing appropriate documentation, including documentation of the design decisions made.
A list of suggested projects is maintained by the third year co-ordinator. Projects are normally chosen from this list but we welcome students' own suggestions, especially those arising from industrial year experience.
(Joint Honours students are not normally encouraged to do a CS39030 project, but are instead offered a CS391 project so as not to leave them short of taught modules.)
Students on different degree schemes may be given different projects.
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 technical achievement, as evidenced by poster sessions, a formal project demonstration, and a substantial written report.
