Do you have a research project that needs software written for it? Third-year Computer Science students undertake group projects which are sourced from around the University. As well as traditional Computer Science application domains, past groups have done projects in diverse areas, including archaeology, lactation biology, medical education and conservation biology.
Being a second semester unit (CITS3200), projects span a 7 week period from August to October and about 100 person-hours from the group will be available. As a guide, the list of the projects on offer last year can be found here.
Please note that for a project to be successful you will need to meet with the students a couple of times to discuss your requirements, comment on prototypes and to take delivery of the completed system. While we cannot guarantee professional quality software, some projects have contributed to publishable outcomes and the most successful past projects are those where the students have been in regular contact with the researcher involved.
In addition, as the unit forms part of their assessment, you will also be asked to evaluate the progress of the project a small number of times along the way by completing a short form. (This is not onerous, having been on the receiving end).
