Submitted in electronic format (*. doc or *. pdf ) One interim e -submissions is required during the winter break. Feedback will be provided in writing. Each report will be structured in the way each student believes it is appropriate. However, the below four parts are mandatory in each and every project. – literature review and rationale for the work
