This module exists to allow particularly strong students to study, at their own initiative, material that is outside what can be found in other modules that are available in the School of Computer Science. Learning is by self-managed study under the direction of a supervisor (a member of the academic staff of the School). The topic for a particular student is by negotiation between the student and supervisor early in the semester.


On successful completion of this module, the student should be able to:

  1. demonstrate detailed understanding of a topic in Computer Science
  2. solve problems or engage in critical analysis of problems or issues related to a topic in Computer Science
  3. give a presentation on a topic in Computer Science appropriate to an academic audience
  4. write a report on a topic in Computer Science in the appropriate style for an academic audience

Sessional: continuous assessment (100%).

Supplementary (where allowed): Repeat only.

The continuous assessment consists of 40% presentation, 60% report.
