CSC8480 Computing Complementary Studies A

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences
School or Department : School of Agric, Comp and Environ Sciences


Pre-requisite: Students must be enrolled in one of the following Programs: MCOP or MPIT or MCOT or MCTE


The course provides the opportunity for a student to pursue an area of study that will complement the other studies in the student's program. Typically, the course will consist of specialised investigations extending knowledge and skills in a certain area. The studies could involve, for example, directed readings, extension of the project (where appropriate), or some other approved activity which would complement the student's studies in the program. This course can be combined with CSC4490 to provide the opportunity to undertake a larger project. In this case, the overall structure of the two courses is similar to one course, but twice as long. In such cases, at the discretion of the Supervisor, the research methodology module from CSC4400 may be included in the student's required workload, including assessment items selected from that module by the Supervisor. This course may also be used as an extension of existing undergraduate courses in cases where a student undertaking an Honours or Masters program wishes to undertake studies in this area. In such cases, approval for the proposed studies must be sought from the Department Postgraduate Coordinator.
