Presentation on theme: "FINAL YEAR PROJECT 2013/2014 UNIVERSITI MALAYSIA PERLIS"— Presentation transcript:

Miss Syazwani Mahmad Puzi FYP Coordinator Bioprocess Engineering Programme School of Bioprocess Engineering UNIVERSITI MALAYSIA PERLIS

2 INTRODUCTION What is FYP? Why is it important?
FYP is an academic but structured research activity germane to the School of Bioprocess Engineering’s area of specialization and it is COMPULSORY for final year students to undertake and complete a project as part of the requirement for the conferment of the bachelor’s degree in engineering

3 Final Thesis & Viva Voce
FINAL YEAR PROJECT 2013/2014 FYP 1-ERT445 2 Credits Proposal Report & Proposal Defense FYP 2- ERT446 4 Credits Final Thesis & Viva Voce SEM 2 SEM 1 Introduction Problem Statement Objective Literature review Methodology Data Collection & Data Analysis Results & Discussion Conclusion Introduction Problem Statement Objective Literature review Methodology

METHOD OF ASSESSMENT Course Outcome (CO) Programme Outcome (PO) Method of Assessment CO1: Ability to synthesize information including standards, code of practice, journals, policies, field data, etc, relevant to the specific research to be undertaken and relate with societal and global issues. PO 6 (Understanding of the social, cultural, global and environmental responsibilities of a professional engineer) PO 11 (Recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.) Rubric for literature review report CO2: Ability to analyze scenario and compose the problem statements and the research objectives of the project. PO 2 (Ability to identify, formulate and solve complex engineering problems.) Rubric for problem statement and research objective report CO3: Ability to formulate research methodology incorporating clear fundamentals, theories and benchmarked against standard practices governing the research project. PO 1 (Ability to acquire and apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering and in-depth technical competence in bioprocess/chemical engineering discipline to the solution of complex engineering problem.) Rubric for methodology report CO4: Ability to prepare and defend research proposal with effective communication skills.

10 Log Book students’ progress based on the Gantt Chart
During the course of the FYP, students are required to submit reports on the progress and conclusions on the project each time they meet with their supervisors. Students have to meet their supervisors at least SIX (6) times per semester. Students are required to bring along the log book each time they meet their supervisors. Some of the points assessed in the log book are: students’ progress based on the Gantt Chart project implementation performance students’ intellectual/character development

11 Supervisor’s Expectation
Students meet their supervisor regularly to discuss the project. Students punctual for the meeting/appointments with the supervisors. Project flows according to the plan. Suggestions from the supervisor are taken into considerations.

12 Supervisor’s Expectation
Students can work independently and provide good suggestions/recommendations to improve the project plan. Students demonstrated extra efforts (read a lot journals). AVOID LAST MINUTE WORK!!!!!!!

13 How to get A for FYP??? Read a lot of journals! Always meet your supervisors to discuss, share information and shows progress on your project- record in your log book Be independent and active Manage your time wisely Make sure you understand 120% of your project Make sure you check your progress report/proposal with your supervisor at least twice before you submit to the FYP Coordinator and submit on time-late submission will affect your marks! Avoid plagarism!

14 Avoid plagirism!!! “ Plagiarism is the unauthorized use or close imitation and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one’s own original work” Student are caught for plagiarizing other people’s work can fail their FYP if there are enough evidence. Please learn how to cite/acknowledge other people’s work correctly.

15 THINGS TO DO FROM NOW Understand the objectives of your project.
Prepare a Gantt chart. Prepare an outline of the content of your thesis. Get the materials i.e. books or relevant literatures as much as possible from now. Keep in touch & clear doubts via with your supervisors. Read a journal a day and summaries it. Always update your Log Book - Keep all your works (research, design, experimental result, … etc) Bring along to meet supervisor.
