WELL BEGINNING IS HALF DONE !
How to choose or select a good Project topic is the most common problem faced by all the students atleast once in their education life ,from the point of start of choosing the Project topic to the end , students are not sure about it.
First of all we do not understand the basic meaning of Project , we all choose it without proper knowledge and we do it only for the sake of completing it as a curriculum or credits , most of us fail to understand the importance of Project topic and end up choosing wrongly.
This post will help you understand how to choose the Project topic or you can say Research topic for whatever education level you are at. The information given here is not confined to any particular degree , masters or any higher level of Research. Here you will understand a basic knowledge of selecting Project topic for any respective qualification.
NOW LET US UNDER STAND THE PROCESS, THERE ARE SOME SYSTEMATIC STEPS TO BE FOLLOWED TO WORK ON ANY PROJECT SUCCESSFULLY.
Firstly you have to understand what do we mean by PROJECT, project is an individual or collective work which is planned to achieve a particular aim or goal.
When we start doing the Project may it be in degree or master level , we find so many things getting stuck in our mind one at a time and we will be in lot of confusion to select the topic for our Project. Let us not get into this kind of the situation , the very first step will be to list out all the favorite subjects of your choices or if you are interested in some particular area or it could be even some familiar content or information about the subject.
Do not leave your mind to think and expect it to come down to one particular topic , it is not possible because there are hundreds of topic where you can work on , so narrow down your selection and list only some of the areas which you are interested or familiar. For example : Its something that you are in middle of the ocean and figuring out the different possibilities of getting out , so at that point you have to narrow down different paths and start moving in some particular direction.
Once you make a list of the subjects or the areas , then start looking for which subject has the wider application and which is trending in the present technology, now doing this you again cut down or narrow down your selection and arrive at some particular subject.
Now this subject again has many topics to work on , but do not worry you are at the right process of finding out the project topic , once you decide which subject to work on , list all the trending technologies and its applications which can help you to narrow down your further selection .
When you have listed down all the latest technologies and their application ,select some technology and application which you find interesting to work on and start collecting the information required , so how do you do it, by searching good content , journals and publications .
Get atleast 10 latest papers on it and start reading it randomly , by this time you will surely get to know what exactly you are looking for, after studying journal papers or information on different technologies and application , now again narrow down your selection and come to final conclusion of selecting a Single Project topic on which you would like to work.
NOW AT THIS POINT YOUR WORK IS HALF DONE.
Actual work of your project start now ,next step is literature survey , now we will first understand what literature survey is , it is a process of knowing what are all the existing information or publications on one particular topic. So you collect all different types of information, publications, journal papers till date for a topic on which you decided to work .
NOTE: While going through the literature survey focus on the most recent and latest information on your topic so that you find out the exact technology gap . Else it would be like , you work on exhaustive literature survey and come up with something and finally after a while or mid of you Project you understand, that your work already exists and you have wasted your time so far, so going through the latest information about the subject is very important.
After literature survey is done , now you are able to find what is the exact technology gap , what are the existing problems in present technology. so without finding out the problem in your project area, you cannot provide any solution to it , so by this time you should have found out the Problem Statement, list it out.
So next comes objectives of your project ,where you have to decide to improve some of the parameters or improve efficiency of the system looking at the problem statement listed above.
NOTE: Your objectives motive should be to find the solution to the problems that are defined in previous section , here the problem statement and objectives almost look alike but has different meaning . For example: In problem statement if u have found system efficiency is 60% , then objective of your project should be increasing the system efficiency to 70% or so.
List out all the objectives one side and understand how the parameters or efficiency or anything for that matter could be improved using different methods . so how you solve the problem by which technique must be explained in Methodology, the process of achieving your objective by making use of some techniques and software etc is called as methodology . Now this methodology should be explained only after objectives. Then lastly get some Results or outcome of your project .
Now write down the Conclusion on seeing all the results that you get in the process of your Project, there will always be some scope of improvement to any project , so at last you can describe Future scope of your Project , which could help you in future if u take up higher studies or it could help some one to find out how they can continue your work further.
Here as an example I have shared some schematic of what is been explained so far so that you will have the clear idea of selecting you Project topic. This schematic does not confine to one particular subject , I being from the background of Electrical Engineering I chose it .
I believe this information will help you out in having a clear idea of how the project topics are choosen, go through the information properly and start doing your project , when u understand the clear picture of anything that your going to do , half of the work is done at that point ,so i have phrased it at the start of the post that , well beginning is half done !
