Mini-Projects & Research Projects

Mini-projects

Mini-projects run from April - September

  • Each student will complete two 10-week mini-projects at the end of the first year.
  • Each project will be supervised by an Oxford academic and a company researcher.
  • At least one mini-project will be undertaken as an internship in a company.
  • Mini-project topics will be presented during February and students will be collectively involved in the assignment of projects.
  • All research projects (see below) will have an associated mini-project, enabling students to try out areas of research before they commit themselves to a research project.
  • We aim to have more mini-projects than required, in order to ensure students have choice.

 

Research Projects

Research projects run from October of year two and students work on them for three years.

  • All InFoMM research projects involve working on an industrially focused challenge.
  • Research projects  span the expertise of our faculty.
  • Students choose their research project by the start of August of their first year (see mini-projects above).
  • Students are be expected to spend some time each year (about one month) at the premises of their partner company.
  • We aim to have more research projects than required, in order to ensure students have choice.
