CSC 595: Seminar and discussions

Semester 1 2017-2018
This course aims at preparing students to comfortably indulge in research for their graduation projects and theses. It sets the groundwork of the logic of inquiry.  It adopts a systematic research methodology starting by a selection of a topic in the computer science disciplines and collecting a comprehensive list of references for it through the search of available information resources. Students are then asked to analyze the collected references in accordance with a set of criteria that appraise the publication information as well as the aspects of the contents, including objectivity, coverage, and writing style to obtain a desired list of references. This allows students to have practical skills in finding and using sources of research information, research management, and basic data analysis techniques.
