In no more than three sentences, describe what you wish to achieve.
Significance and relevance: Why is the project important and how is it relevant to your chosen software engineering pathways? See the below paths.
List the most relevant work in the area (with the help of the supervisor).
4-6 concrete and measurable project objectives: you may wish to split the focus on the research and/or implementation contributions of your work. For guidance, you may follow one of the below pathways:
Pathway1 Software Development: If your work is purely engineering, this may include the major features of your system. You may wish to highlight the most significant requirements, the preliminary architecture and design that you envision, along the approach that you will be taking to implement and evaluate your software product. It is expected that your final thesis will provide systematic reporting that will further elaborate on the software engineering of your product, covering requirements, design and architecture, implementation, testing and evaluation.
Pathway2 Research-Based Software Systems Engineering: If your work is research-based, you need to include the major research work that will be carried out to meet your project aims; coverage of the related literature and how it can support your research; sensible plan to evaluate your contribution.
Pathway3 Research into Software Tools and Implementation Prototype: If your work will be a mix of research and implementation prototype, you may need to include the most significant element of your research and features of your planned prototype and how it intends to serve your research.
