5  The main objective is:  to provide students with the skills in analyzing, designing and implementing computer solutions to a variety of problems.  The aim is to:  leverage students’ technical and soft skills.  Through this course, students should be able to demonstrate their technical knowledge, problem- solving, critical thinking and good decision-making. Aim & Objective

6 ACADEMIC PROJECT I

8  At the end of the course, students will be able to: i.Analyze problems and produce problem statements. ii.Identify appropriate solution approach for the problems. iii.Review literatures related to the problems. iv.Use appropriate programming languages and/or tools for each solution proposed. Learning Outcomes

9  This course covers the following research activities:  Problem identification  Literature review  Solution identification  Mastery of the proposed tools/programming languages  Writing a research proposal  Research proposal presentation (viva) and show the mastery of tools/programming languages Synopsis of Course Content
