Students

Projects offered by staff

In order to undertake a project offered by a staff member follow this workflow:

  • Step 1: Look at the current list of student projects offered by staff members. Most projects are now online, but more might trickle in over the semester.
  • Step 2: If you are interested in a project, email the supervisor(s) and discuss the project.
  • Step 3: If you want to sign up for a project then both you and the supervisor need to agree. Treat this agreement as a formal contact, e.g., do not agree to undertake two different projects with two different supervisors.
  • Step 4: Once you and the supervisor have agreed, the supervisor will assign the project title against your name on the master spreadsheet. Agreement of projects needs to take place by end of Week 0 for SH and MSci students, and [TBA] for MSc students, and is final. If specialised hardware / software are required (e.g., it’s not in the Labs) then your project is subject to School approval.
  • Step 4: Students who do have not agreed a project after the deadline will be assigned a supervisor and/or project by the Project Coordinator. This is the worst case scenario for everyone involved, so please do everything in your power to find a suitable project!

Proposing your own project

It is possible to propose your own project. In order to do this, follow the workflow described below:

  • Step 1: Put together a short document (<1 page) with a project description and list of objectives.
  • Step 2: Find a potential supervisor, who’s area of expertise (e.g., AI, systems, HCI) matches your project. To get an overview of staff members research expertise and focus read more here.
  • Step 3: Email a potential supervisor with your document describing your proposed project.
  • Step 4: Discuss your potential project idea.
  • Step 5: Once you and the supervisor have agreed, the supervisor will contact the project coordinator. Agreement of projects needs to take place by end of week 0 for SH and MSci students, and [TBA] for MSc students, and is final. If specialised hardware / software are required (e.g., it’s not in the Labs) then your project is subject to School approval.
  • Step 6: Students who do have not agreed a project after the deadline will be assigned a supervisor and/or project by the Project Coordinator. This is the worst case scenario for everyone involved, so please do everything in your power to find a suitable project!
