I can't wait to see what all this is about and what fields they can work in.
I think this will help the project a good deal :-)

The time has come when our projects coordinator has asked for us to
submit our project descriptions for students to choose from.
Cool! Let's get these guys some work :D
Following the brief meeting I had with Olegil et.
al. at AmiGBG, I
would now like to enlist your help in formulating some of these
descriptions so that we can get my students involved in this project.
I cannot do this myself, as I do not know the current status of the
project, nor do I know what needs to be done so far.
Going of the top of my hat:
- We have libUSB
- We have pthreads
- We have aspell & various other small dependencies
While thinking up these descriptions, please keep
the following 5
points in mind:
1. These are 3rd year Electronic Engineering students who have covered
C/C++ in their 1st two years of study - they are NOT computer science
or software engineering students.
2. From start to finish, they would have only about 6-8 months (2
semesters and a bit) in order to complete their work.
3. They should be spending about 5-10 hours a week on this (remember
they have other courses to study too).
4. The projects should be realistic for students of this level.
5. The description should contain enough detail/pointers for the
student to be able to make a good start. I.e. they should know where
they should begin to do their research in order to proceed with the
Does their tasks need to be within a certain field? eg device drivers?
Or does any coding project go?
I hope that descriptions will start to fly in
soon after this email. I
am looking to supervise at least 4 BEng individual projects, and at
least one 4th year MEng GROUP project. A few descriptions (on a bigger
scale) for group projects would also be great.
