15 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: The Industrial Team project provides the opportunity for students to engage in industry inspired research work. It is undertaken in groups. Projects are suggested by industrial problems and supervised by Department of Computer Science staff or industry experts. Students form groups and choose a project which interests them, then refine the scope of the research by conducting a thorough analysis of the topic area and formulating a solution also with the help of their supervisor. The project is developed under strong supervision. The students present their project overview within the first few weeks of the semester and submit a report on the work at the end of semester.

Staff Contact: Prof. T Hain
