Course Description

The course provides students with the opportunity to conduct a project in an approved European institution.  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.  Projects are of wide variety including theoretical, computational, design and experimental.  In all cases aspects of project planning and written communication are included.


Details for second half-session courses, including assessments, may be subject to change until 23 December 2022.
