  • Project note book should be kept
  • Title/blurb/photo
  • Project proposal
  • Final Report
Deadlines:There will be no extension of deadlines except forsound, documented, medical reasons. All extensions will be dealt with by the course coordinator.
Handing In:Project Proposals are to be handed in to the course coordinator using the Honours Handin box in the foyer, 1st floor, G Block.

The Final Report must be checked by your supervisor before handing in. After checking by the supervisor, one unbound, staple-free copy of the completed Final Report is to be handed in to the Computer Science Office (G.1.21) for copying, binding and examination. If the report contains any colour printed pages, then the color pages must be included in the final report and an extra two sets of the colour pages will need to be handed in along with the completed report (making 3 copies of every color page).

The Final Report will be copied twice and then all three copies of the report will be bound. Once bound, the student may then pick up one copy from the Computer Science Office for their personal library.

Students are also required to submit an electronic version of their Final Report. Please email a pdf file to bronwyn@cs.waikato.ac.nz

Handouts:Note: Some lecture notes are accessible through the course schedule.
