COSC480

Welcome to COSC480


This is a 40 point full year paper.

All enquiries about the COSC480 should be sent to the co-ordinator at 400projectadmin@cs.otago.ac.nz.

There are two 400-level project papers offered in computer science: COSC480 (Project) and COSC490 (Research Project). Which paper you should take depends on which degree you are studying towards:

  • If you are enrolled in an Honours degree you must take COSC490.
  • If you are enrolled in the first year of a two-year Masters degree, you should take COSC480.
  • If you are enrolled in a Postgraduate Diploma, you don't have to take a project paper unless you want to proceed to a one-year Masters by thesis. If you do take a project paper then it should be COSC480.
  • If you are enrolled in a Masters of Applied Sciences (MAppSci), you don't have to take a 400-level project paper (although you must take APPS597). If you do decide to take a project paper it would normally be COSC480.

If you have any questions about which papers to take, please contact our adviser of studies, adviser@cs.otago.ac.nz.

The main website for COSC480 and COSC490 is on blackboard.
