In your second year, you undertook a major software engineering project as part of a group. In your final year, you will be undertaking an individual project. You will be responsible for selecting a project to work on, and approaching staff to negotiate supervision.
This individual project will give you a taste of working independently and being responsible for making decisions and planning your own schedules etc. As a result it will prepare you for either working in industry or for undertaking postgraduate study as part of a research degree. You will gain some experience in writing a major dissertation and giving demonstrations of your work.
Currently you need to select a supervisor and a project topic. Tips on how to do this, and information of the project, can be found from this years G53IDS homepage
If you believe you have arranged a supervisor, please check the list of project supervisors to make sure your name is there. If your name is not there, you will be regarded as not having a supervisor and will be allocated one by me at random. Clearly this will be detrimental to your dissertation so do not make me do this! If you have not arranged a supervisor you can also check this list to see which supervisors are still available.
