The aims of this module are to enable students to participate in a software engineering project under conditions that simulate, as far as is practical, the context of real-world industrial projects. Students will extend the skills and knowledge gained from previous modules of their course, and further develop the ability to work as part of a team.
PLEASE NOTE: There is no reassessment nor can compensation be applied for this module.
