Code of Conduct of Final Year Projects in Engineering Disciplines
Engineering and Technology Journal,
2019, Volume 37, Issue 4C, Pages 441-444
AbstractThe importance of the management and implementation of graduation projects lies in the fact that this activity constitutes one of the main pillars of the undergraduate academic curricula in most scientific or literary disciplines. In engineering studies, for example, the weight of the graduation project within the curriculum is estimated at 25% for the year of graduation and about 8% of the total weight of the first university degree in most universities in the developed countries. In this context, this paper suggests specific steps for conducting this work and the allocation of responsibilities in the management of this scientific activity. The paper also suggests a number of recommendations, to be included within the curricula of undergraduate engineering disciplines in the public and private engineering colleges.
