Aims

An individual project set by supervisors within the School, and possibly associated industrial collaborations, which is designed to give the student scope for developing his/her capabilities as an engineer. The project provides the opportunity to practise skills and techniques learned in previous modules as well as investigating and developing new areas of interest to support the project objectives. Projects may include components of design, materials, electronics, engineering science, mathematical modelling, etc, as well as managing time and resources. Projects are allocated by the module leader in broad themes and students will be encouraged to indicate their areas of interest

Outline Of Syllabus

An individual study of aspects of engineering to investigate a research or applied engineering topic, which may involve design, analysis, computing or experimental studies. The module requires the student to apply themselves to the project in preparation for professional practice, to direct their own activities with appropriate supervision where required and to deliver a coherent document which addresses the project objectives. Time management and coordination of necessary resources will be required and should be evidenced.
