Teaching Rationale And Relationship
Lectures convey the computing concepts and theory and their application in process engineering. Practical classes support the learning introduced in lectures through the students having the opportunity to apply the concepts to a number of problems varying in terms of complexity. The practical classes allow the completion of assignment work.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners

Assessment Rationale And Relationship
Computing based programming skills are best assessed by demonstration of the capability, and the lab based assignments serve to assess the level of achievement of the learning outcomes. The assignments are completed with the use of MATLAB and Excel to demonstrate that appropriate levels of skills in the use of these applications have been gained. The examinations enable the assessment of whether the student have understood the methodologies and whether they are sufficiently conversant with the application of the techniques to real world scenarios.
