12 points, SCA Band 2, 0.250 EFTSL
Undergraduate Faculty of Information Technology
Leader(s): Associate Professor Ann Nicholson
This unit introduces the student to independent research. Most projects are software-oriented, although some projects may be purely theoretical and others may involve hardware work.
Upon successful completion of the unit the student will also have acquired general core research skills, including how to:
- find and analyse current research literature;
- critically evaluate research findings, including critical argument analysis and statistical analysis of experimental results;
- identify open problems in current research;
- identify promising new research directions based on previous results
- set realistic timelines and intermediate deliverables for a medium-scale project
5. communicate research results in a variety of forms, including informal oral presentations, written reports, seminar presentations, poster presentations and web sites;
6. collaborate effectively in a (small) research team
Research Proposal (5%), Literature Review (10%), mid-year interim presentation (hurdle), Final report & presentation (85%)
Entry to the Bachelor of Software Engineering Honours stream. By invitation only.
