Course code COMP4252Units 20Level 4000Faculty of Engineering and Built EnvironmentSchool of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

This course is the second part of the CS Honours project.
It requires that Part 1 (COMP4251) was successfully completed first.
Part 1 and 2 together comprise a substantial individual research project usually involving a literature review together with a theoretical and/or practical investigation of a computer science problem. In part 2 students complete their project building on the foundations and the plan developed in part 1. Under the supervision of a member of the academic staff, each student will complete an individual research project and at the end provide a written exposition (research dissertation in the style of the discipline) of their research. Technical content will be dependent on the project undertaken.
