Students of the BCS are required to complete a course that involves the chance to 'research, select, integrate, and apply a range of techniques and technology in the solution of a complete realistic problem'.
The work is generally undertaken in the last semester of study, and the 7229 Project paper is worth 36 credits - twice the size of a 'normal' BCS paper.
The Project, 7229, should be the last paper students do, although they can do one other paper at the same time. Before doing it they should therefore already have at least 306 credits towards the degree, including all the other compulsories and required number of level 6 and 7 papers other than the 36 credits at level 7 for the project and any credits associated with any concurrent paper. They must have done SAD1 (6234) and Project Planning and Control (6231).
This page was created to allow access to information supplied by the students working to identify a project, allowing people within the local IT industry the opportunity to evaluate their previous work and their capabilities.
The learning outcomes for the student include:
