During the module students will touch upon several typical aspects of performing research in Information Technology (IT). Students will learn how to perform scientific research on a given problem and how to evaluate the quality and relevance of their research. This includes identifying a valid research topic, writing a research proposal, performing the research, evaluating and reflecting on the research quality, and presenting the results.

The Research Project module is organized as a typical research conference: the Twente Student Conference on IT (TScIT). The conference has several tracks all related to information technologies. The conference provides an excellent opportunity for students working in different areas of IT to come together, discuss, and exchange their expertise and knowledge related to various aspects of modern Information Technologies.
During the module, several tutorials will be given on research-oriented topics (e.g. information retrieval, performing research, scientific writing, and presentation).
Students will have to go through a standard research trajectory, starting from identifying a research topic (within a certain domain), writing a research proposal, performing the research, and presenting the results (in a paper and a presentation).
Two important deliverables are needed:
  • Research proposal. As a first step towards carrying out a research project, each student has to write a research proposal highlighting the context, problem statement, importance, state of the art, methodology, expected results, and planning. A draft proposal will be reviewed by the corresponding track chair and peer students.
  • Research paper. Upon acceptance of the proposal, each student will perform the proposed research. The results of the research will be described in a scientific paper following the submission guidelines of the conference. The paper will be reviewed by student peers as well as the track organizers.
Submission and review of proposals and papers will be managed through an online conference paper management system. All accepted papers will be made available on the Conference website and will be presented at the conference.
