    This course is a compulsory course for all honours students in the Communications Technology programme. This course will expose you to situations that you will face in your employment. It requires planning, researching and putting ideas into practice in the search for solutions. You will work under the supervision of a tutor who will guide you throughout your project work.

    Compulsory prerequisite(s)
    Students should have successfully completed at least 140 credits from the OUHK Communications Technology programme before they undertake this course.

    This course aims to:

    • Enable you to define a set of objectives and appropriate methodologies;

    • Provide an opportunity for you to apply and put into practice what you have learned from other communications courses;

    • Help you develop skills in planning, managing and scheduling various tasks required to solve a number of problems;

    • Enable you to fully develop and use your knowledge and skills in the communications technology profession;

    • Teach you how to present a well-structured, written account of the techniques, methods and findings from an independent study.

    The course has no conventional course materials. Some reading of current technical materials available in journals and reference books may be required. This course will enable students to reveal problems in this area that are yet to be tackled and understand the directions scholars are taking to find solutions.

    The project has a practical aim and is conducted at an advanced undergraduate level. Individual projects can be any of the following: (a) projects based on expertise in one particular area from among ELEC S311, ELEC S332, ELEC S313 or (b) projects initiated by a course team or by students’ work-related projects with company endorsement.

    Learning support
    There will be regular tutorials. Activities will involve discussion, guidance and advice-giving sessions for individual projects.

    Three reports are required for submission: (i) Initial Report (Assignment 1): the project proposal, its background and the project plan in about 1,500 words; (ii) Interim Report (Assignment 2): outlining progress made, the method of investigation and a brief outline of the final report in about 2,000 words, plus an oral presentation of the interim report; (iii) Final Report (Assignment 3): in about 7,500–8,500 words, giving full details of the project results, conclusions and importance of these conclusions. There may also be an oral examination at the end, if required. Students are required to submit assignments via the Online Learning Environment (OLE).

    Online requirement
    This course is supported by the Online Learning Environment (OLE). You can find the latest course information from the OLE. Through the OLE, you can communicate electronically with your tutor and the Course Coordinator as well as other students. To access the OLE, students will need to have access to the Internet. The use of the OLE is required for the study of this course.

    Many advanced communications and computer facilities are available for project use. For example, wireless LAN, satellite signal transmission and receiving hardware, multimedia and virtual reality development tools and mobile and network simulation software. Industrial collaboration project opportunities are also available.

    Set book(s)
    There are no set books for this course.
