1.      Preamble

1.1  The academic course in Computer Science includes one project in each Year. The Purpose behind this is to consolidate the concepts and practices imported during the course and to serve as a record of competence.

1.2  A group of two students/ three student as team may be allowed to work on one project.

2.      Project content

2.1  Project for class XI can be selected from one of the topics given in event programming.

2.2  Project for class XII should ensure the coverage of following areas of curriculum:

a.      Problem Solving

b.      Data Structure

c.       Object Oriented programming in C++

d.      Data File Handling

Theme of the project can be 

Any subsystem of a System Software or Tool

Any scientific or a fairy complex algorithmic situation.

Business oriented problems like Banking, Library information system, Hotel or Hospital management system, transport query system


Tutor/Computer Aided Learning Systems

2.3  The aim of the projects is to highlight the abilities of algorithmic formation, modular programming , optimized code preparation, systematic documentation and other associated aspects of software development.

2.4  The assessment would be through the project demonstration and the Project Report, which should portray programming Style, Structured Design, Minimum Coupling, High cohesion, Good documentation of the code to ensure readability and ease of maintenance.
