CROP 440: Research Project


In the final year, a B.Sc. student in Crop Science must choose a topic for a research investigation directed at solving a specific plant science-related problem in consultation with a lecturer who becomes the student’s supervisor.  A bound dissertation describing this investigation must be presented to the Department before the final examinations begin.  Although the research project is basically for training students in scientific research, it must be done conscientiously and the dissertation must contain all the elements of a publishable scientific paper. The course is spread over the first and second semesters.
