FIT4013 - Software engineering research project
24 points, SCA Band 2, 0.500 EFTSL
Undergraduate Faculty of Information Technology
Leader(s): 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 completion of this unit students will 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;
- define feasible projects based on such problems;
- set realistic timelines and intermediate deliverables for a medium-scale project
- communicate research results in a variety of forms, including informal oral presentations, written reports, seminar presentations, poster presentations and web sites;
- 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.
