  • CSC079 Fundamentals of Robotics

    This module introduces students to the fundamentals of robotics. Students will demonstrate their ability to solve problems while developing their programming skills by completing a series of robotics-based lab tasks.

  • CSC410 MSci Computer Science Project Research Methods

    This module will introduce students to some fundamental research methodologies and good practice in research. They will undertake background research including a literature review and specify the aims of their MSci final year project, and produce a plan for their proposed research.

  • CSCM79 Hardware and Devices

    This module encourages students to explore the advanced literature and research results underpinning the field of interaction technologies and ubiquitous user-interface development. Students are expected to achieve a clear view of the `cutting edge¿ and issues in the field.

  • CSP420 MSci Computer Science Project

    This module is the research based Level 7 project for MSci Computer Science students. It consists of a substantial written dissertation which usually involves both a research component and the implementation of a tool/software system.

  • CSP709 Future Interaction Technologies MRes Project

    The FIT MRes research project provides students with the opportunity of exploring a particular topic in interaction technologies. The project will typically involve the development of an interactive system: specification, design, implementatation, testing, verification and evaluation. The project will enhance the students' competence in design, analysis, reasoning, experiments and evaluation. It will give students an intellectual challenge to their abilities to learn new subjects and to develop their abilities in literature searching, report writing, verbal presentation, project planning and time management.
