Module description

This module will provide students with the opportunity to apply computer science and/or engineering principles and techniques to the solution of a practical problem involving a large project.

Module aims

The aim of this module is to provide students with the opportunity to apply computer science and/or engineering principles and techniques to the solution of a practical problem.

Module learning outcomes

After completing this module students will be expected to have

1. Researched the background and literature relating to a practical problem involving the application of computer science and/or engineering.
2. Designed, implemented and evaluated a solution to the problem according to appropriate computer science and/or engineering principles.
3. Written a dissertation about their investigation.
4. Given an oral presentation, answered questions about the project, and given a demonstration of their implementation.
5. Demonstrated the use of appropriate project management tools to organise and prioritise the various tasks involved in producing both the solution and the report.

Module information

Outline Syllabus

All taught course MSc students, who have been successful in their examinations, undertake an individual project during the summer. The project, which must be in an approved area of computer science or electrical engineering, is carried out under the supervision of a member of staff, and leads to a substantial dissertation.

Learning and teaching methods

Exceptionally it can be necessary to make changes, for example to programmes, modules, facilities or fees. Examples of such reasons might include a change of law or regulatory requirements, industrial action, lack of demand, departure of key personnel, change in government policy, or withdrawal/reduction of funding. Changes to modules may for example consist of variations to the content and method of delivery or assessment of modules and other services, to discontinue modules and other services and to merge or combine modules. The University will endeavour to keep such changes to a minimum, and will also keep students informed appropriately by updating our programme specifications and module directory.
