Learning Outcomes of the course unitBy the end of the course, the students should be able to:
  1. Integrate and apply the knowledge acquired throughout their undergraduate studies in order to solve computer science related problems that can form the basis of a senior level design project.
  2. Employ analytical, modelling and experimental methodologies for the implementation of a design project.
  3. Use appropriate software and hardware tools to support the implementation and evaluation of the project.
  4. Employ appropriate assessment criteria to validate and evaluate the outcome of a design project.
  5. Draw conclusions on the implementation of the project, and propose areas for improvements and future developments.
  6. Produced a structured written report on the work of a design project.
  7. Employ a variety of tools and media to present and orally defend the work of a Bachelor’s level design project.

Course Contents

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.
Recommended and/or required reading:
  • No specific book is assigned. Students are expected to consult a variety of information sources, including textbooks, manuals, scientific papers.
    Planned learning activities and teaching methods

    The Student is expected to use appropriate tools and methodologies for the implementation of the objectives of the Senior Project as approved in the ACOE489 course.

    The Student is expected to meet regularly with his project Advisor to ensure that the set objectives, methodologies and planning are met.
