Aims

  • To give students the opportunity to work in a group, in a guided but independent fashion, on a substantial problem that allows to show innovation and/or creativity and allows to make practical use of principles, techniques and methodologies acquired elsewhere in the programme.
  • To give experience of carrying out a large piece of group work involving the synthesis of advanced information, ideas and practices in order to provide a quality solution together with an critical evaluation of the process and the solution.

  • To enhance communication skills, both oral and written, in particular through collaboratively producing a report that documents the conduct of the project, the solution produced and givin g a critical evalution of process and solution.


  • Learning Outcomes

    work effectively and cooperatively within a team, taking on various roles within the team, on a substantial problem that allows to show innovation and/or creativity and allows to make practical use of principles, techniques and methodologies acquired elsewhere in the programme;

    specify formally a , showing awareness of the wider context and identification of issues that such context might cause, and produce a plan to address this problem;

    manage their time effectively both individually as well as a team so as to carry out a project plan;
    locate and synthesise general and research information on concepts, ideas, and practices, relevant to a given project;

    undertake research on their own on a substantial Computer Science problem and to devise as a team an efficient solution using an appropriate methodology;

    evaluate in a critical fashion the work the group has done, and to place it in the context of related work;

    prepare and deliver formal presentations, including, where appropriate, an overview of the methodology used, the design of a solution, and the demonstration of software;

    collaboratively produce a report describing the conduct of the project, the solution produced and giving a critical evalution of process and solution.


    Syllabus
