|Description || This module enables students in the CDT for Topological Design to take ownership of a research programme by developing a research proposal which is assessed by a mock ‘grant panel’|
Under the guidance of mentors, students will develop a proposal for a research project in topological design in their area of expertise and interest, following a guidance document with sections similar to a typical research proposal (following the EPSRC template).
Complementing this, the students will work through a set of self-study exercises on the principles and practice of data science, and will incorporate data science elements as appropriate into their research proposal.
|Learning Outcomes || By the end of the module students should be able to: |
- Create, develop and express their own research ideas in an appropriate language for a research council proposal, to be judged by a panel of experts potentially outside the student’s primary research field;
- Present their proposal to a panel in appropriate written and presentational forms
- Understand the basic principles of data science and apply core algorithms to a variety of data of different types.
- Demonstrate competency with version control for code and archiving of data.
