Course Description

Every student is allocated an individual engineering project which is supervised by a member of the academic staff. The project will normally be in the student’s area of professional interest.

Projects are of a wide variety and may include theoretical, computational, design, experimental, review and field work. In all cases aspects of project planning, written communication, and oral presentation are included.

Further Information & Notes

This course is spread over both half-sessions. The student effort expected is equivalent to 15 credit points in the first half session and 15 credit points in the second half-session. The timing for a part-time student is determined on an individual case-by-case basis.

Teaching Breakdown


Assessment

1st Attempt: Continuous assessment (100%): Winter Term Progress Report (30%), Poster Presentation (20%), Thesis (50%). Resit: There is no opportunity for resitting this course.

Formative Assessment

Feedback on winter report will be provided shortly after the report submitted.

Feedback

The results of the assessment of individual components will not normally be disclosed to students. However, written feedback will be provided and students requesting individual feedback on their project should make an appointment within 2 weeks of the publication of the results. Students will be informed by the University Registry of the overall result for the course, using the University Common Assessment Scale.
