Major Project Proposal COMP 8037

Computer Systems Part-time Studies Course

Course details

The objectives of this course are to give students the opportunity to explore in-depth a selected area of computer technology and identify complex real-world problems. Students will select a problem to solve in their Major Project. They will critically analyze the problem, existing challenges and issues, and related literature. Students will prepare a project proposal that includes the project’s objectives, specifications, review of similar systems and related literature, feasibility analysis, and a design of a solution that should be innovative, experimental or exploratory in nature. Students will implement a proof-of-concept prototype to demonstrate the feasibility of their project. ​

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Identify and evaluate opportunities, needs for real world problems, and/or empirical research in an applied computing environment.
  • Identify a real world complex problem that needs to be solved with a computing solution.
  • Propose solutions to pitfalls inherent in research methodologies, and specifically address issues related to reliability and validity.
  • Identify the project objectives, their importance, and how they relate to current practice and advances in technology and research in the computing environment.
  • Access and interpret current primary source research material using the Internet, professional journals, and other sources of research.
  • Critically analyze and evaluate published literature with respect to the project’s objectives.
  • Identify the project requirements.
  • Present possible solutions of the problem with a unique view via synthesis and further exploration.
  • Analyse the project’s feasibility and create a proposal (including a draft design, relevant diagrams, a review of existing literature, and test plan) using principles of software engineering.
