Not offered in 2006.
Synopsis: This unit introduces students to a variety of topics outside the curriculum, and provides an opportunity to write programs (or, rarely,to build hardware) in an area of interest to the student and the School. The unit operates in an informal manner, and the programming tasks are designed to be interesting and challenging to advanced students. Students will typically meet with their supervisor on a weekly basis and in addition to demonstrating the results of their project, they will also give an oral presentation.
Assessment: The subject is Pass Grade Only. Assessment is based entirely on a demonstration of the student's project work, which will include oral discussion of the concepts and skills learned.
Contact Hours: 40 hours over the semester.
