Teaching Rationale And Relationship
The lectures are designed to assist students in the acquisition of a knowledge base that will facilitate understanding of concepts and detailed analysis methods (IKO1-5).
The practical sessions are supervised activities in which the students apply the knowledge that they gain during formal lectures and private study to carry out a preliminary design of an offshore platform (ISO1-3).
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners

Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The examination allows students an opportunity to demonstrate knowledge, understanding and the possession of subject-specific and key skills. This medium also allows students to demonstrate intended learning outcomes across a wide range of topics within the syllabus.
The project work and written exercise allows students an opportunity to demonstrate written communication skills, design skills, IT skills and depth of understanding.
The Graduate Skills Framework Skills indicated as 'A' are also assessed in this way.
