School of Computing

Project week 2017/18

  • For all School of Computing students, and for all Computer Science modules, there will be a Project Week in each of the Autumn and Spring terms.
  • During a Project Week usually no scheduled teaching activity takes place; there are no coursework deadlines within a Project Week
  • Instead, activities in support your studies are offered. (Note that, due to the variety of timetabling constraints involved, there are no activities arranged specifically for Applied Computing students, and the CS MSc one-week project in Spring term is compulsory).
  • Timetables for specific activities will be provided by email nearer the time:
