    This project is about the development an artefact (an intelligent search engine) to retrieve information that is relevant to the user from the internet. Learning from the user's previous searches, the artefact manipulates the results returned to be unique to the user. A review is conducted, investigating how information is currently retrieved from the internet and the problems with search engines. A basic search engine is developed with the help of a third party web service, this search engine is used as a baseline when comparing the performance of the intelligent search engine. During design, consideration is given to the user requirements, keeping the design within the constraints of the requirements. The design is implemented using C# as the programming language and the Visual Studio 2005 as the development environment. An evaluation is provided, verifying and validating the intelligent search engine against the user requirements. Discussions on how the intelligent search engine could be further developed, success and failures of the project are discussed in the conclusion.
