Description In this unit, students can deepen or apply knowledge gained during their course and practise verbal and written presentation skills. Students will carry out a project under the supervision of an academic staff member. Assisted by their supervisor, students will define the problem to be studied and then acquire, develop and apply the appropriate theory or methodology. They will prepare a final report presenting theoretical results or methodology, an analysis and a discussion followed by an appropriate conclusion, as well as a literature review or a list of references as appropriate. Students will also give a talk on their project.
