MSC8001 Research Project Methodology
Pre-requisite: Students must be enrolled in one of the following Programs: MCOP or MPIT or BSCH or MSMS.
This course forms the first part of the research component of the Honours and Masters programs in the Department of Mathematics and Computing, developed further in MSC8002. It develops the foundation for ultimately completing a selected project in Bioinformatics, Computing Science, Mathematics or Statistics with the supervision of appropriate staff from the Department of Mathematics and Computing. The project will consist of review, research into and reporting of a well defined area and its application. In this course, information and ideas for the project will be gathered, organised and a preliminary analysis made in a critical and evaluative manner. The topic of the project will be selected in consultation with the appropriate staff of the Department.
