SCC.210 - Computer Science Group Project
Computer Science students in the second year of their studies are divided into groups and are assigned a project. The overall goal of the group project is threefold:
- To give students the experience to execute a large scale project, from requirements analysis to the presentation of the results.
- To work in groups to the demands of a client (in this case, the project supervisor).
- To apply knowledge being gained in other courses within a project context.
By the end of the academic year, students are expected to gain experience in carrying out a large-scale development project in a real-world environment. As part of the project, groups deliver reports, souce code, oral presentations and product demonstrations.
In 2013-2014, I was appointed convenor of SCC.210, which I shared with Dr Gerald Kotonya, Dr Manfred Lau and Dr Mark Rouncefield. In that year, the Software Group of IBM presented awards for the Best Project, the Best Presentation and the Best Poster & Demonstration at the end of the demo day.
Module statistics shown below include the number of students who were enrolled on the module, the number of students who completed the module evaluation report, and the average score in the category "module as a whole".
