• 11 December 2015:
    • A new FAQ item on converting UROP reports into school technical reports has been added.
  • 14 April 2015:
    • A new FAQ item differentiating UROP from CP4101 (FYP) has been added.
  • 19 January 2015:
    • The Project Update form has been deprecated for a simpler email update. You now only need to send an email providing your matric number, name and new project title to Mrs Kwek to have your project updated.
  • 16 January 2015:
    • The UROP Final Report submission workflow will now no longer require hardcopy by default. Students should disseminate their report directly to supervisors and examiners via emailed electronic copy by the report deadline. A copy of the report will also need to be uploaded to IVLE workbin to record the submitted timestamp.
      In the case where an examiner or supervisor requests for hardcopy, the student will be required to provide it.
      Failure to meet the stipulated deadline (as noted in IVLE) may affect the student's grade.
      This workflow is modeled similarly to CP4101 BComp Dissertation (FYP).
  • 16 January 2015:
    • UROP prerequisites have been modified to drop coursework requirements. The revised requirements are that students need to (1) have passed 60 MCs before attempting UROP and (2) have achieved a 3.8 CAP upon application to UROP.
  • January 2014:
    • UROP students no longer have to attend or submit materials to the UROP Congress, as SoC is no longer participating in the programme.
  • 19 November 2010: Some updates to the following exemptions:
    • For the Communications and New Media (CNM) programme, CS3208/CP3208 is allowed to replace CS4201 Interactive Systems Project I or CS4203 Game Development Project I, and CS3209/CP3209 is allowed to replace CS4202 Interactive Systems Project II or CS4204 Game Development Project II. This is applicable to all students in the CNM programme under the restriction that the project is in the media area (subject to approval of UROP coordinator). This exemption is not applicable to students in the Concurrent programme with Carnegie Mellon University.
    • For Computer Engineering (CE) and Computer Science (CS)programmes, both CS3208 and CS3209 or CP3208 and CP3209 are allowed to replace CS3215 Software Engineering Project or (CS3201 Software Engineering Project I and CS3202 Software Engineering Project II) under the restriction that the project contains significant programming content (subject to approval of UROP coordinator).
    • For the Computational Biology (CB) programme, CS3208 and CS3209 / CP3208 and CP3209 are allowed to replace up to two of level-3 electives under the restriction that the UROP project must in the computational biology area (subject to approval of UROP coordinator).
  • 4 April 2007: The following exemptions have been approved.
    • For the Computational Biology programme, CS3208 and CS3209 is allowed to replace up to two of level-3 electives under the restriction that the UROP project must in the computational biology area (subject to approval of UROP coordinator).
    • For the Communications and Media programme, CS3208 and CS3209 (both required) is allowed to replace CS3342 Interactive Media Development Project except for students in Concurrent programme with Carnegie Mellon University under the restriction that the project is in the media area (subject to approval of UROP coordinator).
    • For Computer Engineering and Computer Science programmes, CS3208 and CS3209 (both required) is allowed to replace CS3215 Software Engineering Project under the restriction that the project contains significant programming content (subject to approval of UROP coordinator).
  • 29 February 2007: The pre-requisite CAP for UROP will be raised from 3.5 to 3.8 in Semester 2 2007/08.
  • 9 February 2007: NUROP Congress 2006/07 hosted by School of Computing
  • 12 June 2006: New grading scheme for students starting Semester 1 2006/07. See CS3208 page for the grading scheme.
  • 4 May 2006: From Semester 1 2007-08, UROP (CS3208 and CS3209) will have a new prerequisite CS2305 or CS2305S. CS2305/S will be introduced in Semester 1 2006-07. Those planning to do UROP in Semester 1 2007-08 or later should take the course from Semester 1 2006-07 onwards.
