Project Policy.
1.Project submissions must not include external materials (e.g., web downloads).
2. The project must be turned in on the due date. Late projects are not accepted for any reason and will receive a zero mark.
3.The project is an individual research work.
4. The projects will require substantial time commitment. We strongly recommend that students begin working on assignments early.
Examination Policy
The comprehensive exam consists of a written answer to a quiz or question list, and a closed-book exercise consisting in analysis and design of a small application.

Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software, Erich Gamma, Richard Helm, Ralph Johnson, John Vlissides, Addison Wesley Professional, 1994
In Romanian:
Design Patterns - Sabloane de proiectare, Teora, 2002.

Project Work
Guidelines to Projects
1. Until the 10th October a list of project topics will be made available. Each student reports his/her preferred choice for a topic and the list of their submissions will be published in mid- October.
2. Throughout the semester, students will be responsible for development of a project.
3. The project report is submitted in late December (before Christmas period). On the prof's request the student may rewrite the report in early January.
4. In middle January (the last two week of the semester) the students are to give a 15 minutes defense of the project. The project defense is a separate requirement for passing the exam in this subject and part of the grading of the project work.
We expect that effort spent will help the student to gain a thorough understanding of software project development.
Here is the contents table for project deliverables.
