Reading Lists

Reading lists for individual Engineering courses will be available through MyAberdeen before the start of term. In the meantime, you can brush up your study skills and learn more about the University at our award-winning Toolkit website.

Assessment

Engineering courses will be assessed using a variety of assessment formats in the 2022-23 academic year. Assessment will include coursework, reports on laboratory/computer practicals, design reports, online timed tests and (in a limited number of cases) invigilated formal exams. The assessment structure will vary from course to course, and there will be specific details in every course handbook at the start of term.

Practicals, fieldwork and placements

A full range of campus-based lab activities will go ahead in the 2022-23 academic year. We will aim to run as many of our usual site visits as possible, although some visits may not go ahead because of local restrictions put in place by host organisations. Where a particular site visit cannot proceed, we will endeavour to source a suitable alternative visit or provide other alternative activities.

Postgraduate Research

As well as being a Postgraduate Research Student in the School of Engineering you are also part of a wider PGR community through the Postgraduate Research School

Orientation

We are looking forward to welcoming you to campus to start your research journey with us. As a Postgraduate Research student you will have the opportunity to attend a University wide induction in addition to your school induction.

The University of Aberdeen Orientation programme has been designed to take you through all of the essential information you will need for your student life. You can get started now by working through the interactive modules.

There are a series of modules that you can work through before you arrive. Once you have registered you can access the remaining modules and complete your mandatory training programme through your bespoke PGR training platform on our virtual learning environment.

There will be a school welcome event for Postgraduate Research students. This will provide an opportunity to meet Postgraduate coordinators and PhD supervisors. There will also be time to answer any questions you may have. Further details regarding the welcome event will follow in due course.

Audit Master‘s Courses

As a PGR student you may have the opportunity to audit Master‘s courses to augment your research training. Please discuss this with your supervisor and check out the postgraduate taught pages above.

The PGR School also offers a comprehensive training programme to support your research journey.

Timelines and Milestones

The PGR School training and development programme offers academic, professional, and personal development through a number of training workshops, resources and opportunities, all intended to support the PGR community at the University of Aberdeen.
