500 Final Year Project Ideas for Computer Science 2016

In degree of BS(CS/IT) Computer Science specially in Software Engineering of 4 years required final year project (FYP) in last two semester. Students ask to submit their proposals in 7th semester or sometimes in the start of 8th semester. It is difficult to decide what should be developed as university forces students to develop something different and unique. In this post I will give you some final year project ideas and tips to finalized your Computer Science project proposal.

TIP to Select Best and Unique Final Year Project :

Before start looking on ideas, clear your mind about some myths about final year projects. Mostly students want to develop something unique and different they search for final year project ideas but never found best one for their proposal. An average university is not demanding something new to invent from you. FYP is just for learning purposes. Although you should developed something helpful and useful and display on your CV later.

So I want to tell you choose any topic which is already developed and find the negative points and drawbacks in already developed systems. Then write your proposal with some additional features and remove the drawbacks of previous systems. For example You selected an online file storage system. There are already many systems developed in this topic but you can make it unique by adding extra features like allow multiple files upload, view images, videos, preview of MS files and document files. You can add SMS sending and notification features in your system. So these things will make your project unique and acceptable for your supervisor.

Final Year Project Ideas for Computer Science

How to Select Tools & Programming Language for FYP:

It is very important decision for project. You should decide the programming language, platform and Tools for your final year project before the selection of topic. Never choose difficult language or any unfamiliar platform for project. Always select programming language and platform which is easy for you and you have already some idea about that. If you think all languages are equal for you and you have not familiar with any programming language then search on the net and select the tools and languages which are old and online help is available easily. For example PHP is best choice over Asp dot net. Hope you got my point.

Now keep above points in your mind and have a look on some Final Year Project Ideas which are best for 2015 and 2016 session for Computer Science Students specially for Bachelors level BS(CS) etc.

Last Tip:

When you find a website or system already developed but not popular, don’t show it to your university, Create it as a new one. In 90% cases University supervisors are unaware of new innovations. Also you can choose the topic which is implemented at any other country but not in yours. It is also considered something new and different.

For example, Online Lift System (Lift Sharing System) is only implement in United Kingdom(UK), even in the USA it is not very popular so can develop it for your country by adding some local features which suits to your country.
