|COURSE NUMBER:||CMPT 496|
|COURSE TITLE:||Research in Computing Science|
|NAME OF INSTRUCTOR:||Computer Science faculty members|
|CREDIT WEIGHT AND WEEKLY TIME DISTRIBUTION:||credits 3(hrs lect 0 - hrs sem 1 - hrs lab 3)|
|COURSE DESCRIPTION:||An independent project in computing science, designed in consultation with the instructor. This project may be either a
software development project or a computing literature research project. Before work commences, the student is required to
submit a detailed proposal. Upon completion of the project, the results are presented in the form of either a fully documented
program or a research paper, and a seminar.|
Prerequisites: Twelve credits in computing science at the 300-level and consent of instructor
|PROJECT DEFINITION:||All projects for CMPT 496 shall share the following common goals:|
1. They shall be beneficial to the student by providing the student an opportunity to develop skills and/or research knowledge in the discipline of Computing Science.
2. The projects shall be well defined and tractable.
3. The projects shall be substantial. It is expected that any project the student shall complete will be appropriate for a senior level Computing Science course.
4. The project shall be the property of the student insofar as it will be necessary for the student to disseminate into the public domain knowledge directly related to this project. Knowledge gained by the student outside the scope of the project shall remain exclusively the property of the supervisor/supervising business unless otherwise mutually agreed upon.
5. A final mark for the course shall be determined on the basis of the student's performance as measured by the student's ongoing performance, log book, midterm report, final report and oral presentation.

|COURSE OBJECTIVES:||CMPT 496 is a project-based course designed to provide students with an opportunity to experience research in the field of Computing Science. As such, it is expected that the student will take the initiative to develop creative solutions to the problem addressed. At the same time it expected that the supervisor would work closely with the student in order to provide (possible) suggestions for a topic, timely discussions to get theproject started, and regular meetings as required.|
Required texts, assignments, and grade distributions may vary from one offering of this course to the next. Please consult the course instructor for up to date details.
