ALL PROJECTS

Since 2002 there have been a number of research projects conducted. Below is a list of titles and a few links to projects undertaken by Final Year Project Students (BSc) and MSc students. I stopped collecting the titles in 2007 because there were just so many of them (although when I get some time I might try and update it to 2013/2014).
