Having a one liner doesn't give a student enough information to see what
the project may entail. Having a project title and a small description
will make the project more appealing IMO. I'd rather know as much as I
can about a project I'm about to take on.
I think something like what Apache provide is great :

I wasn't referring to anyone using this as a degree project, I just
meant a degree project is a good, professional format, and it would be
good to follow that format.
When I've chosen my degree projects in the past, I was given a list of
potential projects from mentors. I picked the ones which sounded the
most appealing from their project description. If a project was
described in one or two lines, I would generally ignore it. My thoughts
were that it can't be too exciting or the mentor has no interest.
It always worked well and this SoC format is exactly the same.
