Procedure
Final Report Resources
 0. Understanding Objectives

The final project report is the last and most important requirement of 4th-year project course. It should be submitted by individual students. However it should also reference the group projectís objectives, employed theories and methods, and achievements to clarify the position and contributions of the individual efforts within the whole project. You should also introduce the whole project in the introduction along with the general theories or techniques used as a group.Then almost all of report should be about your role and design. In the conclusion you can show how your part integrates works with the group parts, and demonstrate how successful is the whole project. The final report should contain the following information. Students should strictly adhere to the following structure.
