EEEN3010J Degree Project (BDIC, Beijing)

Academic Year 2024/2025

Restriction: Beijing-based students only.

This module will give students the opportunity to undertake a substantial independent project in some area of Internet of Things Engineering. The project will run over one Trimester, following a project plan drawn up in consultation with the student's academic supervisor.

The project work may involve elements of research, design, analysis, simulation, construction, measurement and experimentation, with the mix depending on the particular project. In addition, students will learn to conduct a critical literature review and enhance their communication skills through various presentations of their results.
