Convenor: Prof. J.L. Fiadeiro
The students develop a project plan relating to a topic that they choose from a list. The list will be made available at the end of the Autumn term and the students should register for a chosen topic at the beginning of the second semester. Each such plan should include: a fairly detailed problem statement; background information, including motivation and state-of-the-art; and a proposed high-level approach to solve the problem.
At the same time, students will attend lectures on transferable skills related to technical writing and research, as well as presentation.
Students will be assessed on the basis of a 10-minute oral presentation (30% weight) and a 2000 word document (excluding bibliography) that describes the project plan (70%).
