    Hey all

    I'm starting the final year of my Computing Science degree and I have one week to finalise the title for my major project/dissertation.

    Any help with ideas for projets would be fantastic, I need a little inspiration...

    Here are the general guidelines:

    - I'm specialising in Software Engineering so it has to be related to that subject area.

    - Preferably it would inolve programming in Java as I am fairly compitent with this language but I can do other languages.

    - It needs to be interesting.

    - It musn't be too simple otherwise I wont be able to get a good mark.

    - It would preferably involve creating a program that has a visual user interface as I am interested in user interfaces and human computer interaction.

    Thanks in advance ;)

    hey dude, what uni are you at?

    im at manchester met, my final year project is to create a personal development planning system. The project i actually wanted to do was with regards to HCI & PDA's. Basically how humans interact with pda's then go onto creating your own application sepcifically for pda's with usability in mind etc etc. obviously theres a lot more to it but this was one recommended by the uni as its challenging as theres not much research done in that area. Someone else on my course got assigned the project, thats why im not doing it :(
    xylomn says thanks.

    I'm at Newcastle Uni :)

    Sounds interesting, I have a little experience in pda programming, had to program a gps application for a pda for my second year project, and it does involve my interest in HCI :)

    Thanks for that idea choppy.

    Keep the ideas coming people :D

    thanks for all the ideas, I've come to a decision on what i am going to do... I know it sounds completely unrelated to most of the suggestions I wouldn't have got to the idea without the input so thanks :D

    I'll post my proposal below that i'm pitching to the lecturer in the hope he'll supervise the project.

    Welll if you had 20,000 dollars handy you could help me with what I want to do for my Science fair project. Namely build a self-driving car.....then again you are on another continent. Anyways....if you have the money, that's always open :D
