The course is designed to provide the student with the opportunity to carry out a project in an approved European institution by pursuing a substantial and realistic exercise in the practice of engineering at or near a professional level, and to further enhance the student's critical and communication skills.
|Session||Full Year||Credit Points||60 credits (30 ECTS credits)|
The course provides the student with the opportunity to conduct a project in an approved European institution. Some preliminary work may be carried out in the University of Aberdeen in the first half-session but the major part of the project will be undertaken in an approved European institution in the second half-session. Every student is allocated an individual engineering project, which is mainly supervised by a member of the academic staff from the host institutions. However, additional academic input from a University of Aberdeen staff member may also be available if required. The project will normally be in the student's area of professional interest. Projects are of wide variety: theoretical, computational, design, experimental, review and field work. In all cases aspects of project planning and written communication are included.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
1st Attempt: Continuous assessment (100%). This comprises: thesis (70%), institution report from the host institution concerning the conduct of the project (15%) and poster presentation (mini-conference) (15%).
The student needs to submit thesis and present a poster.
Students can receive individual feedback on their progress with the Course on request at the weekly meetings with supervisor/feedback sessions. Students requiring individual feedback on their submitted thesis and/or poster presentation should make an appointment within 2 weeks of the publication of the results.
