Third Year Individual Project
Available Project Supervisors

Page under construction
The purpose of this page is to keep you informed of which lecturers are still available to supervise projects. Some lecturers have already taken on their full quota of projects, and other lecturers are unable to supervise projects this year because of absence. The information on this page is still tentative and will change

REMEMBER: While it is nice to have a project supervisor who knows a lot about the area you want to study, that may not be possible, especially if you want to study an Internet or e-commerce topic (like everyone else!). However, the real benefit of a project supervisor is that they know how to go about approaching a study of this nature, and can provide you with advice on how to find information and how to write your dissertation.

BEFORE YOU APPROACH A POTENTIAL SUPERVISOR... be sure to have either a clear idea of what project you want to do, or else be willing to take on a project that they suggest. There is no point going to a potential supervisor with an idea like "I want to do something about the Internet" because many supervisors may not have the in-depth knowledge of the area to be able to refine your idea. Anyway, the choice of project is really up to YOU - if you really can't think of a definite project in the area you are interested in, ask a potential supervisor about projects they may have ideas for in areas they know more about. Alternatively have a look at the links below, some of which are also at the Project Ideas page where some of the staff have put up possible project ideas. To get an idea of the interests of the staff members, look at their entries in the postgraduate prospectus page.

I currently think the following will be taking on students for next year - the number in (brackets) is the number of students they have been allocated. If you are a student and your name does not appear on the list (to be placed here in the autumn) then you need to contact me as soon as possible. If there is any information missing (eg project title) then please inform Dominique Widmer <dxw@Cs.Nott.AC.UK> of this as soon as it is known and not after 15th October. If you have been allocated a supervisor then you need to make arrangements to see them and get started on your project as soon as possible.

The staff available to supervise and possible project ideas are shown here. Please do not approach staff who have a full quota as you will likely be turned away. Also do not be dissapointed if someone who appears to have spaces left turns you down as there is a delay updating the numbers.
