Introduction Undertaking a project is not a sequence of unrelated activities. A good project is based on a systematic, well-managed or 'engineered' approach with a sound philosophical foundation. The fundamental principal of carrying out an effective project is to match the project plan to the resources that are available for its completion. Disruption to the project can be minimized by setting a realistic time scale for completing the activities and for presenting the deliverables in a way that takes into account any other commitments. According to C.W. Dawson (2005), an academic project is not similar to an industry project. Student of computing degree courses need to look at things much more critically and more deeply. Academic projects should provide evidence of a much deeper understanding of what you are doing. They require some form of justification and contextualization. As a student, you are not expected to do merely what you are told to do, but you are expected to develop your own thoughts, arguments, ideas and concepts. You are expected to question things and look at things in new ways and from new angles. Merely “turning the handle” or doing what you are t o l d does not lead to intellectual discovery and contributions to world thinking. Importantly, as a degree student y o u a r e e x p e c t e d t o t h i n k . This deeper understanding of situations, problems and events is supported by your research skills – skills that are vitally important within academic projects. The key objective of the project is for students to experience all phases of the system development process. It also pays emphasis on the student getting real time work experience skills set such as team work skills and also project management skills for instance scheduling, proposing methodology and limitation of project. This handbook on Bachelor Project will help you to understand the requirements of the modules “Project Planning” and “Project Design and Implementation” providing MEC_MED_GUI_001_01 Page 4 of 132 Controlled Copy.

The responsibility of interacting with the project supervisor for smooth completion of project solely remains with the individual student. 1.1 Aim of Bachelor Project At MEC, the honor’s project extends to two semesters and combined as two modules namely “Project Planning” and “Project Design and Implementation”. Project Planning module is the prerequisite for Project Design and Implementation module. Each module has a duration of one semester in which an individual student independently undertakes a major study in a topic specifically related to the programme. The purpose of these two modules is to integrate the theoretical concepts and practical skills achieved by the student and create a platform for the practical application of the same. It expects to demonstrate the necessary proficiency and experience in planning, analyzing and designing an individual project, leading towards its implementation within the specialization area. 1.2 What is a project? Many definitions exist for explaining a project. Project Management Institute (PMI) defines a project as “a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service or result”. Nokes defines project in his book, The Definitive Guide to Project Management, as “A project is a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product or service” (Nokes 2003). James P. Lewis, defines project as “A project is a one-time, multitask job that has clearly defined starting and ending dates, a specific scope of work to be performed, a budget, and a specified level of performance to be achieved” (James 2006). It can be a research based project or a development project. From the definitions we can conclude that a project has the following features: • A project is temporary • A project is unique • • A project has multi-tasks which will lead to achieve the goal A project has specific start date and end date.

Most of the undergraduate programmes emphasize the need for project work in their curriculum. The various reasons given by some of the universities for doing a project are given below. East Tennessee State University emphasizes the importance of completing a research or creative project because “it gives students “hands-on” experience and a greater indepth understanding in what they are studying”. Also they point out that the “experience” will help students develop and polish those skills necessary to their field of study and their future job. They also add that the research experience will help students to decide whether they want to study further in that field or if they really want a job in that field (East Tennessee State University 2009). Along with this, the project work done by a student shows others that the student is capable of handling a major task independently. Ohio State University outlines the three benefits of doing a project namely: educational, professional, and personal ( The Ohio State University 2006): Educational benefits: • Working closely with a faculty mentor • Learning about issues, methods, and leaders in students' chosen fields • Applying concepts learned in coursework to "real life" situations • Sharpening problem-solving skills • Learning to read primary literature Professional benefits: • Exploring and preparing for future careers • Developing marketable skills • Enhancing professional communication skills • Collaborating with others and working effectively as part of a team Personal benefits: • Growing as a critical, analytical, and independent thinker • Meeting challenges and demonstrating the ability to complete a project • Discovering personal interests • Developing internal standards of excellence 1.4 Selecting a project When deciding to do a project, the first thing to think about is concept development. The project concept states the area of the project, nature of the project question (project problem), MEC_MED_GUI_001_01 Page 6 of 132 Controlled Copy.

Document Name & Type Approval Date Review Date Bachelor Project Guide 19/10/2020 10/10/2020 Author/Department Effective Date Next Review Date Head, Department of Computing 19/10/2020 09/10/2021 various possible solutions, methods of achieving the solution, and its relation to your specialization. For getting a better understanding of the project problem, the following questions should be asked: 1. What are the characteristics of the project problem? 2. For whom the project is being done? 3. Is this problem was solved / attempted to be solved by anyone else? 4. Is relevant information available? 5. Is the necessary hardware/software available? While selecting a project it may be useful to consider the requirements of the final project report and the evaluation criteria. The project evaluation criteria emphasis on the understanding of the problem, difficulty and uniqueness, methodology followed etc. By following this, you may begin forming an outline of the project report and can plan for the other deliverables. 1.5 Types of project In the field of Computing, Projects are classified into 1. Research based projects 2. Product development projects. The research based project normally delivers a research article or suggests a solution for an existing problem after carrying out an extensive research. British Computer Society requirement for a project states that, “an engineering project is one that involves practical work to solve a problem in the field of information systems” (The projects team, 2008). The general requirements for the individual research project are: • explanation of the problem or research area and the objectives of the project • an in-depth investigation of the context/literature/other similar products • a clear description of the research method being used • a description of the outcomes of the project • a critical appraisal of the project, indicating the rationale for the methods used and lessons learnt during the course of the project • references The product development projects usually develop a product as a solution to the project problem.

It does not have to be the construction of a new system from scratch- it could also be to substantially adapt an existing system. The artifact does not have to be a computer program: a design document might be the appropriate output from a design study. A piece of hardware would also be an appropriate artifact” (The projects Team 2008). The general requirements of the product development projects are given below: The students are expected to demonstrate: • their ability to apply practical and analytical skills learnt in their degree course • innovation and/or creativity • synthesis of information, ideas and practices to provide a quality solution together with an evaluation of that solution • • • • • the ability to follow the appropriate system analysis and design methods that their project meets a real need in a wider context the ability to self-manage a significant piece of work critical self-evaluation of the process. references While selecting projects it would be sensible to think about how you will be able to demonstrate that your solution has solved the problem to the satisfaction of all concerned and be cautioned that your project work must be in-line with the aims of your programme specialization. Also, your artifact can’t be accepted as ...
