Final Year Project

Final Year Projects are innovative, individual works where students develop a project on technologies specifically used in professional Computer Engineering in order to show the skills they have acquired in this Undergraduate Degree. 

Methods: 100% of the Project will be carried out via seminars, individual tutorials, and any specific activities that each student must complete to develop their project. 

Final Year Projects will be presented and defended before a University Committee, either via an oral presentation (type-A projects) or an oral explanation of a poster (type-B projects). While type-A Projects may be graded up to Excellent (9-10 points) or First Class Honours, maximum score for type-B Projects will be Very Good (8 points).

  • Step 1: confirmation of defense (to be done by the student).
  • Step 2: confirmation of defense (to be done by the tutor).
  • Step 3: FYP delivery (to be done by the student). Students must use UAProject to deliver a compressed file containing the following documents:  
    • Final Year Project Report.
    • Final Year Project Summary - maximum 500 words.
    • Poster - vertical, 70x100 cm (only for type-B FYPs).
    • Liability & Original Work Authorship Statement PDF or Word ).
    • Students who have chosen to have their FYP Report published at the University of Alicante Repository (RUA) must also attach a file containing the Final Year Project Report, named rua.pdf (lower case). ONLY THE CONTENT OF THIS FILE WILL BE PUBLISHED AT RUA. 
  • Step 4: tutor report delivery (to be done by the tutor).
  • Step 5:  defense calendar & jury member proposal (to be done by the tutor).
    • The tutor must set a date and time for FYP defense and appoint jury members via UAProject, by clicking on the tab "Confirm defense particulars" (see red square in help section). Each jury will be made up of three members (a Chair, a Spokersperson and a Secretary), who must be lecturers from any of the departments teaching in the Undergraduate Degree that the Final Year Project belongs to. An alternate jury member from the same department will be appointed for each of the members. It is not allowed for tutors or co-tutors to appoint themselves as jury members.
  • Step 6: Final Year Project defense.  

 

Final Year Project Report

Each Undergraduate Degree has been assigned a colour that students need to use in the cover of their Final Year Project Reports. The Polytechnic University College has also drafted a style guide that students must comply with when they draft their FYPs:

  

Final Year Project Defense

For type-A projects, defense time is 15 minutes maximum. Should students need to carry out a practical demonstration, they will be granted an extra 5 minutes provided that they have previously requested this. 

For type-B projects, poster explanation time is 5 minutes maximum. 

During the defense, both jury members and students may consult the Polytechnic University College Protocol for Final Year Project oral defense in order to check the structure that the defense must follow. 

 

Assessment

Tutor's duties and documents 

Below is a list of duties that each tutor must comply with (steps 2, 4 and 5 as described above):

  • To confirm the defense once the student has requested it via UAProject

An alternate jury member from the same department will be appointed for each of the members. It is not allowed for tutors or co-tutors to appoint themselves as jury members.
  • To draft tutor report and upload it to UAProject ( PDF  or Word ). 
Jury duties and documents

Prior to the defense, each jury member will have access to the Final Year Project Report to be assessed at UAProject (by clicking on "Confirmed Reports").
