Description During the course students will have developed a passion for topics in computer science, such as artificial intelligence or computer security, and the project is the ideal opportunity to explore one of those topics in depth. Students will take a complete project through the concept, design, implementation and evaluation phases, giving crucial experience that can be taken into a commercial or research environment. Projects are chosen from staff suggestions or are developed from the student's original idea. The project normally includes writing a substantial piece of software or developing some hardware. Occasionally, it can consist of conducting research other than by writing software.
Learning Outcomes By the end of the module students should be able to:
  • carry out a substantial computer science problem solving task.
  • work independently and prioritise different components of the work; manage a large project effectively.
  • take decisions and justify them convincingly.
  • orally present work undertaken, and answer questions about itconvincingly.
  • write a formal report, detailing work undertaken and conclusionsreached.
