Duration: 6 - 8 months (Two-Trimesters)

Objectives for Subject TPR3321:
  1. To expose the student to the real application of acquired theoretical knowledge with the regular System analysis and design structures, professional Software development operations and operational functions.
  2. To have hands on experience in software development related to their field of interest so that they can apply and buttress what has been learnt at the classes.
  3. To earn the qualities of research orientation for accumulating knowledge on a specific problem domain, and to develop synergetic collaboration between people and procedures.
  4. To set the record of achievement on their professional expertise, that plays as a show case for their future employments.

Objectives
for Subject HRD3019:
  1. To expose students to the techniques and philosophies of scientific research.
  2. To apply research protocols and tools studied during the course work.
  3. To practice research in a specific area of bioinformatics.
  4. To develop oral presentation skill.
  5. To be trained in writing a dissertation/research paper for publication.


Requirements:

In order to register for Final Year Project (TPR3321 or HRD3019), students must have completed at least sixty (60) credit hours of subjects excluding Arts and Humanity subjects.

Students are also encourage to complete the System Analysis and Design (TIS2211) or Software Engineering (TCS2411) before taking the Final Year Project (FYP).


Project Schedule

The project schedule described here is only valid for normal FYP in which will be carried out long-long trimesters or two long trimesters (8 months), otherwise, the project will be considered as Special Case FYP that carried out in short-long or long-short trimesters (6 months). For Special Case FYP, student has to follow the FYP Timeline provided by the faculty and not the project schedule described below.


FYP Phase 1 (First Trimester)

FYP Phase 1 is concerned with developing the problem specification and design. The progress on these activities will be monitored through regular weekly meetings with your supervisor.

By the second week of the trimester students must have a short, written description of the project. Then, for the next 11 weeks, a complete and precise problem statement needs to be developed, followed by the formal design of an experimental system that solves this problem. In addition, students must also prepare an implementation plan that will guide their activities in FYP Phase 2, and build a working prototype that demonstrates the functionality of the students proposed research/ software.

At the end of Week 11, students are required to produce two "deliverables." The first is the Interim Report (Week 11) describing what you have done. This includes literature search, methodology, interviews, market surveys, statistical analysis as well as the completed specifications and design. Following are the important events highlighted for FYP Phase 1.


    Important Events for FYP Phase 1


    Before Week 1

    • Students view the list of FYP titles and information.
    • Students select the FYP titles and approach respective supervisor.
    • Students register the FYP subject in ICEMS.

    Week 1

    • Supervisors assign students to project.
    • Students submit the FYP title requisition form to faculty office.
    • Students attend FYP briefing.

    Week 1 - 11

    • Students carry out FYP activities e.g. literature review, planning, analysis and design, interim report and etc.
    • Students meet the supervisor at least once a week. A meeting log must be completed by each student for each meeting.

    Week 12

    • Students submit the Interim Report and students must make sure that their report follows the formatting requirements (e.g. layout, font size, references, etc).
    • Students arrange the presentation time slot with supervisor.

    Weeks 13 - 14

    • Project presentation and demonstration of the prototype or research work.


FYP Phase 2 (Second Trimester)

FYP Phase 2 is concerned with experiment or system implementation as well as the research contribution of the project. Students' tasks are to take the specification and design work done during the previous trimester and construct a finished, working system that meets all specifications. Students will again meet weekly with their supervisor to describe the project activities and detail its progress. Students have 11 weeks to complete the implementation. In Week 12, the student is required to submit the Final Report and give a presentation and demonstration on Week 13 and 14 of the completed system or result to the supervisor and moderators. Following are the important events highlighted for FYP Phase 2.


    Important Events for FYP Phase 2
    Week 1

    • Student re-register the FYP subject.

    Week 1 - 11

    • Students carry out FYP activities e.g. core results/ findings of the project, coding, testing, implementation, final report and etc.
    • Student meet the supervisor at least once a week. A meeting log must be completed by each student for each meeting.

    Week 12

    • Students submit the Final Report (for evaluation) and make sure your report follows the formatting requirements (e.g. layout, font size, references, etc).
    • Student arrange the presentation time slot with supervisor.

    Week 13 - 14

    • Project presentation and demonstration of the prototype or research works.

    Week 15 - 16

    • Students submit the permanent-bound hard cover Final Report.


FYP Timeline

The FYP Timeline shows the important activities that will be carried out in FYP Phases 1 and 2. The student must aware of the important activities highlighted in the timeline. The FYP Timeline is provided separately in the faculty FYP or MMLS websites.


Assessment:

Each student will receive a single grade for the two-trimester, Final Year Project (TPR3321/ HRD3019) course. Student's activities in FYP Phase 1 will count 30% and FYP Phase 2 will count 70%. The following chart describes the marks and final percentage distribution for FYP Phase 1 and 2:
