Synopsis: CSE5351 is the initial unit for a multi-semester research project / minor thesis. CSE5353 is the final unit of the multi-semester project / minor thesis. CSE5352 can be used together with CSE5351 and CSE5353 to extend the research project / minor thesis to 36 points. This group of units introduces the student to independent research. Most projects are software-oriented, although some projects may be purely theoretical and others may involve hardware work.

Assessment: Project Evaluation by supervisors and additional examiners based on deliverables, final thesis and final presentation (85%). Written research skills assignment (5%). Presentations (10%). The presentation component comprises an initial research proposal (20%), a mid-project interim presentation (hurdle), a literature review (30%), a project presentation as a web site and/or poster (20%), and a final seminar presentation (30%).

Prerequisites: Only available to students with a cognate degree in computer science or equivalent. Students will typically be enrolled in a Master of Computer Science course.

Prohibitions: A degree should not allow the group of CSE535{1,2,3} project / minor thesis units to also include another substantial research project.
