    • To locate and make use of information relevant to a given project

    • To do research by their own on a substantial Computer Science problem and to design an efficient solution
    • To evaluate in a critical fashion the work they have done, and to place it in the context of related work

    • To prepare and deliver formal presentations
    • To prepare and deliver a demonstration of software
