I am the module co-ordinator for the Major/Minor Project, which is essentially the dissertation module. Students taking a single honours course, which is most of our students*, will take the 40 credit Major Project module, which is 1/3 of the 3rd year of study. Students taking a joint honours course will take the 20 credit Minor Project module.
Project selection starts in Semester 1 and the actual project Work starts once the Semester 1 exams are complete.
* Students taking Business Information Technology or Internet Computing will take an alternative Web focused module with Chris Price.
