T-79.189 Student Project in Theoretical Computer Science (3 cr)
Autumn & Spring
Other Instructors: Postgraduate Research Staff of TCS
Coordinator: Kimmo Varpaaniemi
Contents: Independent student project on a subject from the field of theoretical computer science. The project is usually done individually but can be done in groups of up to three people.
Note: the course T-79.189 can be replaced by taking the course T-79.5001 Student Project in Theoretical Computer Science.
The aim of the course is to make an individual scientific project in the field of theoretical computer science. The topic of the project can either be suggested by the student or you can ask the instructors for an open topic. Discuss with your instructor whether a topic and the amount of work needed to complete it is suitable for a student project before starting to work on a project.
One of the main objectives of the individual project is to practice the writing of scientific text. Thus the report should follow the standards set for writing scientific reports: to have a good structure, to use references correctly, etc. (cf. the links section below). Even though a student project is significantly smaller than a Master's Thesis, almost all information about writing a Master's Thesis is applicable to the writing of the student project report.
