Teaching Rationale And Relationship

The module is delivered by non-synchronous pre-recorded lecture materials, along with synchronous live revision/tutorial sessions and live practical demonstration. The lectures and tutorials are presented in a way to be relevant to mechanical and marine engineers and closely link in with the practical experiments.

Assessment Methods

The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners
