The subject allows students to conduct an original research project, under supervision to be approved by a subject Coordinator. The work will be equivalent to lecture and practical based subjects worth 50 points. The content and extent of the project will be determined by a Coordinator, in collaboration with the student and the supervisor.
The work would ordinarily include a review of a body of scientific literature, together with a critical evaluation of research or experimental protocols, and the development of research methods, implementation of a mathematical model, completion of an original experiment, or a thorough exploration of a scientific issue. Projects would ordinarily include a component of original research well beyond a review or critique. Projects would involve regular 1-hour discussion groups where students report on progress, major problems and plans. For substantive reasons, this research project requires more than one semester to complete.
