Module content and teaching

Principal aims

"The group project is intended to give students experience of team project work, similar to that which might be expected of them in a working environment, demanding management skills, problem-solving skills and individual initiative. The project will be in response to the needs of a ""customer"" who will normally be an industrial partner, or may alternatively be an academic, and will be closely involved in the specification and running of the project. The themes for such projects will offer more scope for interdisciplinary and collaborative activities than a typical third year project, requiring a mature knowledge of computer science and its applications."

Principal learning outcomes

On successful completion of the module, each student will have: experience of working in a team on a substantial development project; improved interpersonal and communication skills; awareness of issues relating to project management; experience writing a sizeable report as a co-author.

Timetabled teaching activities

"Terms 1, 2 and 3. Each project will have a ""customer"" (who may be an academic or an industrial partner) and will be overseen by an academic advisor. Each group will contain between 4 and 6 students."
