Learning Outcomes

After successfully completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Critically analyse current research
  • Carry out research
  • Present research results orally and in writing
Learning Aims

Working individual or in a group, students carry out a project on a topic of relevance to the Information Systems discipline. Several types of project can be undertaken—investigative research, research and development, and organisational engagement. Over the course of the year, students analyse prior work, formulate an appropriate methodology for their project, conduct the project work in a reflective manner, critically analyse their findings, and draw conclusions from their analysis. The results of the project must be formally presented orally and in writing.
