Students undertake a year-long (full-time equivalent) research project under the supervision of academic staff from the School of Computing and Information Systems.
For a full-time enrolment, the subject continues over two consecutive study periods (full-time) with students enrolling in parts 1 and 2 in one study period, and then parts 3 and 4 in the consecutive study period, for a combined total enrolment of 100 credit points. To enable part-time study, part-time students may take one subject in a single semester. A mark for the subject/s will not be awarded until the entire 100 points of enrolment has been completed. All subjects are offered in both semester 1 and 2.
Satisfactory completion of the research proposal (in parts 1 and 2) is required to progress to parts 3 and 4.
Information provided on this page applies to all 'parts' of the subject:
- Computer Science Research Project Pt 1 (25 pts)
- Computer Science Research Project Pt 2 (25 pts)
- Computer Science Research Project Pt 3 (25 pts)
- Computer Science Research Project Pt 4 (25 pts)
