It is a constant challenge to identify suitable projects for students who are studying computer forensics. An appropriate project must have a relevant theoretical element and an implementation. Projects are meant to be instructive and should engage the student. At the University of Greenwich, the final project for the MSc award is worth 50 credits out of a total of 180 credits for the entire masters award. The project therefore is a substantial piece of work (suggested 300 hours student time), is minimally supervised (students are expected to really work on their own with occasional guidance from the supervisor) and is expected to be non-trivial in nature (exploring a specific topic in depth rather than a wide topic in a shallow way). Lecturers post suggested projects on a web site, as a starting point but it is expected that students will take these ideas much further or even come up with their own ideas.
