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.
