COMP30040 Third Year Project Laboratory syllabus 2018-2019
The aims for the project work done in the third year are:
- To manage and execute a substantial project in a limited time.
- To identify and learn whatever new skills are needed to complete the project.
- To apply design and engineering skills in the accomplishment of a single task. In this context the skills mentioned may be in the general area of design and engineering in its broadest sense, or may be very specifically related to particular tools.
The formal lectures for the course take place during Welcome Week at the beginning of the academic year. The times are shown in the details panel.
Students are required to produce six deliverables during the year including some coursework during Welcome Week. Details are on the Third Year Project (COMP30040 materials) web pages.
6 hours in total, all in Welcome Week
