Subject Knowledge

Aims

In CO3013, the student will complete the project work planned and started in CO3012 and submit a substantial Computer Science project.

Learning Outcomes

Students will be able to complete specification and design work, and to implement the end (software) product according to their design work. They will be able to test and evaluate the end product.

Methods

Individual research, meetings with supervisors.

Assessment

Interview, viva, effort and final report.

Subject Skills

Aims

To teach students scientific writing and problem solving skills.

Learning Outcomes

Students will be able to revise and update a plan of timescales for project work. They will be able to demonstrate general problem solving skills, and will be able to write a substantial written report on the complete forty credit project.

Methods

Individual research, meetings with supervisors.

Assessment

The assessment of CO3013 is broken down as follows:
  1. 5%: Informal interview before Easter.
  2. 10%: Oral examination and demonstration of software.
  3. 80%: Final project report.
  4. 5%: Mark for student effort and participation, based on a weekly diary.

Explanation of Pre-requisites

This module continues the project initiated in CO3012.

Course Description

The purpose of the Computer Science Project (Modules CO3012 and CO3013) is for the student to combine skills acquired in the other Computer Science modules in the production of a suitable project. In doing this, the student will assimilate information from a variety of sources and demonstrate the ability to pursue independent study.

It is intended that the project should produce some end product for users other than the author. A collection of course exercises, a literature search or a descriptive evaluation would not be suitable.
