Course Description

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.

Degree Programmes for which this Course is Prescribed

  • Bachelor of Engineering in Eng (Mech with European Studies)
  • Bachelor of Engineering in Eng (Mech with Oil & Gas Studies)
  • Bachelor of Engineering in Eng (Mechanical and Electrical)
  • Bachelor of Engineering in Engineering (Civil)
  • Bachelor of Engineering in Engineering (Mechanical)
  • Bachelor of Engineering in Petroleum Engineering
