Course Project

The project can take several forms:

You are encouraged to relate the final project to your research interests, and you will not be limited to the topics discussed in class. “Big data” should somehow be involved though.

Project Proposals:

You must submit a project proposal by Thursday, October 26, 2017. When submitting project proposals, use the normal mechanism for submitting problem sets. The proposal should be at most two pages long with 10pt font and 1 inch margins.

We decide whether to approve your project’s theme based on the proposal, so it is imperative that you do some serious thinking about the project before writing the proposal. Even though you should not change the topic of the project after submitting a proposal, you may change the form of the project (such as writing a survey if you fail in bringing a theoretical contribution).
