E. 24 weeks). Context Design and build projects feature at all levels of the computing science curriculum, from very early, tiny, individual projects to mega-projects that integrate the software components developed by a number of groups, to substantial integrative projects that culminate a degree program. Whether "early" or "late", they are all characterized by the objective of designing and building software that runs, but they vary in other principal dimensions: scale, scope, number of participants, duration, supervisor input.

They may provide critiques of deliverables or intermediate products. Some institutions operate hierarchical monitoring arrangements, with supervisors being overseen by leaders, and a few operate limited joint supervision arrangements. Collective or joint supervision is usually designed to reduce demand on supervisory staff or to give access to specialist expertise. Most students also have access to technical support, some to specialist technical support or laboratory assistants.
