    Whats a Final Year Project?

    The final year project is required to seek individualanalysis and judgement, capable of being assessedindependently from the work of others. The student is

    expected to develop techniques in literature review

    and information processing. It is recommended that

    final year projects should also provide opportunities toutilise appropriate modern technology in some aspect

    of the work, emphasising the need for engineers to

    make use of computers and multimedia technology ineveryday practice.

    Plagiarism (2/7)

    Why do it?

    Students may feel pressured to complete papers well

    and quickly, and with the accessibility of the Internet,

    students can plagiarize by copying and pastinginformation from other sources very conveniently. This is

    often easily detected by teachers because it is easy to

    tell whether a student used his or her own voice.
