1Project 1 (CGNB 413) Briefing By:COIT Undergraduate Project CommitteeDr. Asmidar Abu Bakar (Coordinator Project 1)Azimah Abdul GhaparSera Syarmila SameonSurizal NazeriDr. Wahidah Hashim
2Why do you need to do project? Apply knowledge that has been learned in class.Gain experience in developing a system.Learn something new.To create a sample of your work.Requirement to get a degree.
3Project 1 Activities Select and rank the project areas Check who is your supervisorDiscuss a topic with your supervisorSubmit your initial reportKeep a logbookSet a meeting with supervisor every weekDiscuss with examiner at least onceWrite the draft reportPerform presentationWrite the final report
4Project 1 vs. Project 2The actual scope for project 1 and project 2 depends on the methodology used.Example 1: Waterfall ModelProject 1: Literature review, user requirements, system design.Project 2: Implementation, testing.Example 2: Prototyping ModelProject 1: Literature review, system design (maybe partially), prototype 1, prototype testing.Project 2: More design, prototype 2 (or more), final product, testing.Discuss expected deliverables (for both Project 1 and 2) with your supervisor.
5LogbookEach student is required to keep a logbook (can be obtained fromAll your progress must be written in the logbook.Bring the logbook during your meeting with supervisor.Supervisor need to read and sign your logbook.At the end of the semester, if there are less than SIX signatures, your supervisor has the right to give you an E.
6Project Examiner Each project will be assigned an examiner. An examiner is another lecturer who will evaluate your project together with your supervisor.Examiners will choose the projects that he/she wants to examine.You have no control over who your examiner will be.It is COMPULSORY for you to discuss your project with your examiner at least once during the semester.Many students don’t do this.It may cause problem later on.
7Project 1 EvaluationMarks will be given by your project supervisor and your examiner.Marks allocation:ASSESSMENT CRITERIAPERCENTAGEDEADLINEInitial Report10%26 November 14Progress Report 130%17 December 14Progress Report 2presentation, report and logbook60%30 January 15
8INITIAL REPORTA small write up (around 2 to 3 page) that contain the plan for the whole project.Should be agreed upon by both student and supervisor.Contents:Project titleBrief descriptionObjectives and scopesExpected outcomeGantt Chart
9Progress report 1A write up that contain at least two chapters from the whole report.Supervisor will check and give marks.
10PresentationWill be done in supervisor’s room and evaluated by supervisor and examiner.Duration around 30 minutes.Recommendation and suggestions should be taken seriously.Modify report if necessary.
11Final ReportRead the COIT’s final year project guidelines to learn about the format.Should roughly follow our suggested report contents.Make sure grammar is correct.Write with intention that somebody else who read the report will be able to understand what are you supposed to do for the project.Make sure all contents cited from other sources are referenced properly.
12Project Guidelines for Systems and Networking There are two guidelines that you need to obtain.COIT Project Guidelines for Systems and NetworkingReport Writing GuidelinesBoth documents can be obtained from
13Facilities Money allocation Each of you are allocated RM for buying equipments.Procedures:Get form from lab technician.Fill in the required information.Get your supervisor to verify.Bring back the form to lab technician.The technician will buy the items for you.
14Facilities You CANNOT buy: Pirated softwareBooksSoftware that is already available in the lab.Remember that whatever you buy, they belong to the college.Make sure you return them to the lab by the end of your project.Failure to do so may cause your grade to be suspended.
15Facilities Final year project lab There is a computer lab dedicated for final year project students.BW-4-R06.You can use the lab for:Research (browsing the Web, etc).Development.If you need to install any specific software, please contact the lab technicians.
16FAQsI cannot finish my project 1 in this semester. Can I extend?NO.. Definitely NO unless you have a health problem (e.g. MC for 2 monthsCan I change my project in the middle of project 1?Yes, with the permission of the supervisor.
17FAQs What if I don’t like my examiner? Live with it…What if my supervisor becomes unavailable?If it can be planned (i.e. maternity leave), please make arrangement beforehand.If it cannot be planned (i.e. death, hospitalization, lecturer got fired), please see the project coordinator.
18Common Problems Fail to follow the deadline. Poor attendance for meeting with supervisor.Fail to meet the examiner at least once earlier during the project.Plagiarism / cheating.
