EG595A: INDIVIDUAL PROJECT IN TRANSPORT AND INTELLIGENT MOBILITY (2020-2021)

Last modified: 24 Jun 2020 14:40


Course Overview

The project (with a 55-page limit) provides students with the opportunity to produce a piece of independent and original research on an approved topic of the student's choice.  Advanced level knowledge of a sub-area within the degree discipline of Transport and Intelligent Mobility is developed through independent study supervised by a member of academic staff. Students receive individual, written feedback (using standard comments sheets) on their project. This feedback constitutes agreed comments from two members of staff who have marked the thesis independently.  Marks and comments sheets are made available after the external exam board.
