To satisfy the requirements of the program, students must successfully complete a Senior Project. This is achieved through a two-semester course sequence (ACSC489 and ACSC490) that students must complete during their senior year (last two semesters of their studies). The project should be concerned with addressing a problem in the realm of computer science that requires a substantial body of work to be resolved. These projects can either be research focused, where the student will investigate an open question in the field and attempt to address it, or applied, where the student is expected to provide an applied solution.With the Senior Project (ACSC490) course, students must implement the objectives specified in their project proposal in ACSC489 according to the specified planning. By the end of the course, the student must submit to the Department a project report that includes the project objectives and contributions, a literature review on the topic of their project, the methodology used and the results achieved. Finally, the students must present their project work to their advisor, the second reader, other faculty members and their classmates.
