This can a research project.
All projects must be initially documented in a project proposal. The document should be concise (3 or more pages excluding the cover page, honor pledge and table of contents, and include the following:
Table of Contents
Client, if any
Faculty Advisor with summary of qualifications
Project Plan (including planned schedule)
Knowledge being applied
Work to be performed by others (if any)
The objective describes the scope of the selected project and the client, if any. If you are doing the work for a client, the client must be described and contact information given. You must provide details of your faculty mentor, including the expertise that they have to help you with this project.
The Project Plan should be as detailed as possible, and include estimates for the start and end date of each activity and the level of effort required in each task. The goal is to make sure that all the tasks are defined and that an assessment of level of effort is complete. If tasks are to be done by others, or require involvement by others, including your faculty mentor, this should be identified in the project plan.
The resources section is particularly important if you are doing a project that requires equipment (e.g., the Raspberry Pi). You must provide a list of the resource requirements and how they will be obtained. If there is a cost associated with the resources, this should be identified.
The expected outcomes should define the expected results of the project. If this is a research report, an outline of the report should be given. If it is a project, it should be a description of the results from the project (e.g., a Web site).
