Web Development

Supporting and engaging with staff on long term leave.

New born baby

West Mercia Police employ almost 4,000 officers and staff across the counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Shropshire. At any one time, up to 100 of those officers and staff are away from work for several months whilst they are on maternity, paternity, adoption or other parental related leave. This project is to create a mobile friendly website to support those officers and staff whilst they are away from their normal workplace with information, support and advice.

This project will be undertaken in collaboration with Detective Inspector Liz Warner and Inspector Jack Taylor with the West Mercia Police.


Academic Appointment Booking Website

There is a need for students to be able to book appointments to see their academic staff during their open office hours.

Office hours for staff need to be able to be added to the system, or ideally pulled from Outlook calendars so that students can chose meetings of either 10, 15, 20 or 30 minutes duration inside the scope of the staff member's office hours. Alternatively a staff member might like to stipulate the lengh of the meeting and when their office hours are manually.

This project will see you independently build the skills required to develop the software in a web accessible format so that students can book appointments to see academic staff.

Your task it to research into the wide range of options for development of such a system, then DESIGN - BUILD - TEST your solution.


Student projects selection web-based system

You are using a system to store project suggestions from members of staff in a format that students can access, and so select themsleves a final year project. Chris Bowers has put a lot of work into developing this system, but I'm sure there is room to make it even better. This project will involve finding out what improvements users would like to see, implementing as many as possible of them, and evaluating the outcome. It may involve developing a completely new system, or (with Chris Bowers' agreement) improving his system.
