Course Coordinator: Dr Andrew Lui, BSc (Sydney); PhD (Australian National University)

This course is regarded as the destination in the journey of learning how to integrate the concepts learned in the courses related to Internet applications and apply them to real-world problems. You will work under the supervision of a project advisor who will guide you throughout the project. It is hoped, therefore, that you do not see this course as just another course, but rather as a stepping stone to becoming an expert in a sub-area of Internet technology.

Compulsory prerequisite(s)
Students must have already completed 30 credits from the following courses: BIS B870, COMP S801, COMP S811, COMP S834 or COMP S888.

Aims
This course aims to:

  • enable students to define a set of objectives and appropriate methodology;
  • provide an opportunity for students to apply and integrate what you have learned from your studies in MScITIA;
  • enable students to develop skills in planning, managing and scheduling various tasks required to solve a set of problems;
  • enable students to fully develop and exploit your knowledge and skills in Internet applications; and
  • develop students' skill to present a well-structured written account of the techniques, methods and findings from an independent study.

Contents
The course has no conventional course materials. However, you may be required to read scientific materials available in journals and reference books as recommended by your tutor or Course Coordinator. This course will enable students to reveal problems yet to be tackled in specific areas and understand the directions scholars are taking to find solutions.

A typical project would require students to collect, analyse and evaluate appropriate and relevant data to enhance their understanding and awareness of the issues related to the project, hence generating new ideas to solve the problem concerned.

The project can be of various types: theoretical, where the students will be expected to develop new algorithms; or computer-related, where software may have to be developed, etc.

A student may conduct a work-related project. Each project must, however, be appraised by the computing course team for its technical content, availability of supervisory support and appropriate computing facilities before it can be approved.

Learning Support
There will be a number of tutorials appropriately spaced to maximize tutor–student interaction. The tutorials will be held on HKMU's campus in Ho Man Tin, or through online media. Activities will involve constructive discussions with students about their individual projects, providing technical guidance during the projects, and giving advice about writing project reports.

Assessment
Three reports are required for submission:

  • Initial report (about 1,500 words): This should define the project proposal and project background and include a literature review. A detailed project plan should also be set out.
  • Interim report (about 3,000 words): This should outline progress made and elaborate on the project plans and methods of investigation. A brief outline of the final report should also be given. An oral presentation of the interim report will also be required.
  • Final report (about 8,000 words): This should give full details of the project results, conclusions and the importance of these conclusions.
  • There will be an oral presentation of the interim report, and also the final report at the end of the course (if required).

Students are required to submit assignments via the Online Learning Environment (OLE).

Online Requirement
This course is supported by the Online Learning Environment (OLE). You can find the latest course information on the OLE. Through the OLE, you can communicate electronically with your tutor and/or the Course Coordinator as well as other students. To access the OLE, students will need access to the Internet. The use of the OLE is required for the study of this course.

Set book(s)
There are no set books for this course.

Students with disabilities or special educational needs
Depending on the nature of the project, a particular disability or special educational need may affect the success or efficiency of the project. Students are requested to seek advice from the Course Coordinator before enrolling for the course.
