Why Final Year ProjectMatters? It is one of the most important aspects of your degree. It is the point where you can apply knowledge or what you have been learning in the past few years. It is the point that creates an ordinary graduate vs. an entrepreneur.
Why Final Year ProjectMatters? (Cont.) It is the point that creates meaning of your degree and your existence as a computer science graduate. It is the way of getting exposure and experience of what real world problems are, if done properly. It will inevitably be used as a gateway to industry and to discriminate YOU among your peers.

FYP Theme Nature of Projects Product Oriented Solution Research & Development Project Resources Own Idea !!! Search ideas that matches your idea, if you already have one, and build your idea on existing ideas Faculty Industry
What You can Do in FYP? Your final year project spans across one year. So, take it seriously and do something innovative, Don’t just opt to develop a simple websites or simple ABC management system. Do something which you are passionate about and that excite you, don’t get afraid, and accept big challenges. As Shakespeare said, "Our doubts are traitors, and make us

Some Project Ideas An implementation of research paper (after all you are a Computer Scientist !!!) A combination of hardware + software to solve a real world problem Newest trend/buzz word/paradigm in the industry Working with organization to solve a problem, more than just an ordinary ABC Management System (Make sure you deliver them your project at the end)
Project Ideas (Cont.) Integrate with online platform such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Google Code, Live etc to solve a great problem (Social Networks) Unleash computing/storage power by utilizing cloud platform and achieve something that was not possible before Cloud/Grid Project following Imagine cup theme and level: “Imagine a world where technology helps solve the toughest problems.”
Important Tips Also make sure the material and guide related to your project in available online, you may also refer to IEEE or ACM libraries and digital content. The relevant Resources (Hardware) to implement your idea is easily available and affordable
Which Technology/PlatformYou should Use? The answer to this question is that it depends on what you want to do in future. Perhaps, students are advised to taste several platforms before graduation and let final year project be on platform which you like most. For example, Starting from a procedural language in first semester such as C, move to learn OOP in C++ & C# and then in final year make a project such as networking and database using .NET and Java.
Which Technology/PlatformYou should Use? (Cont.) “It depends on what you want to do in future” means you want to continue your career in particular platform (probably because you like it or there are more job opportunities in it) Whatever your reason be for selecting platform, it’s always better to have your interest in it.
