What is the correct word/term that needs to be before the names of the maker of the project?

I am doing a project with one other person, we have finished the project and we are working on a cover page.

We are not sure what to write out before our names, we have thought of a couple of options, but none of them seems quite right:

  • Submitted by
  • authors
  • made by
  • by

Note: Our work was to modify an existing piece work made by others, so something like ``authors'' doesn't feel right.

Can someone please help us, what is the correct term to write out before our names ?

Added: The project is the final project in a BSC in computer sceince, I am handing it in to a lecturer in the faculty who is my supervisor for the project.

Why should this post be closed?

"Submitted by" might be your best answer. It obfuscates who the originator was (the authors/creators of the original work) and what you and your collaborator did, but the truth is, you are submitting this project (for what? term paper? publication? to a boss?). You can claim that honestly without worrying about who did what on the project.

Since you say that you've modified another work I"d say the best one would be to say:

'Project xx, (if appropriate), Modified by (names).
