Research Project

A project addresses a practical problem and offers the student a chance to put what has been learnt in the different courses into practice. A project requires background analysis and involves an applied project that results in solving a specific business or scientific problem. It is more focused on the application of theory. A project may end up in developing demo software as a solution to a given problem. A project often addresses practical questions such as how best to solve a real-world business problem. While projects may not constitute original research, they nonetheless require significant background analysis. This background analysis may include, but is not limited to, conducting literature review, exploring comparable technologies, reviewing best practices and models, examining similar projects, exploring costs and benefits, and an analysis of findings.

Problems pursued under a project may be predominantly analytical, involving exploration and extension of theoretical structures, or may pivot around the design/development of solutions for particular applications drawn from different areas. A project serves as a focal point for crystallizing the concepts, techniques, and methodologies encountered throughout the curriculum.

The student will select a topic in applied research area, which must be accepted by his/her supervisor and research coordinator for a final approval by the college and produce a satisfactory work. Each student will be supervised the staff but will be solely responsible for interacting with their clients or any third party.
