Part IIA project guide - constraints

Projects are in sets (P1, P2 etc) with each set having a fixed timetable (see Table below); projects must be taken from different sets. Certain combinations of sets and projects are excluded for timetable reasons.

Multidisciplinary design projects (GM1, GM2)

Students may not be allocated both projects, even though they do not clash on the timetable.  Both may be included in student preferences, provided that the overall preferences produce enough valid combinations.

Relationship with your supervisor

The working relationship with your supervisor is central to achieving these aims, and for this reason your College authorises up to 1 hour per week formal supervision associated with the project.  In practice, you and your supervisor may prefer a more flexible structure.  In any case, your supervisor is expected to submit a termly report, which you can view on CAMCORS

Should you have any concerns over supervision arrangements, try first to resolve them with your supervisor.  If they persist, contact your director of studies.

Project work must be planned to take account of your other workload (e.g. module coursework). You may need to spend several weeks in each vacation on project work, catching up on experiments/design/computing and drafting your reports. Experimental work and any substantial computing should be completed before the beginning of the Easter term, leaving the Easter term for consolidation and writing up.
