Module content and teaching

Principal aims

The aims of this module are: To provide experience of performing a project on an individual basis; To undertake an individual project under the supervision of a member of staff and report findings both orally and in writing; To provide students with the opportunity of applying and demonstrating their capabilities (engineering knowledge, initiative, enthusiasm, etc) to plan, carry out and control an open-ended project in a topic of their choice; To provide students with the opportunity of enhancing their communication skills: writing proposal, interim and final reports and giving an oral presentation; To provide students with simulated experience of working as professional engineers in an industrial or research organisation.

Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module the student should be able to: develop enhanced knowledge and understanding of the engineering or engineering-related topic of his/her project and apply that knowledge in an efficient manner; demonstrate ability in several of the following areas: Qualitative and quantitative analysis of technical problems;Risk assessment; Problem solving using appropriate methodologies; Research and information-gathering; Planning/designing an experiment; Designing a system/component/process based on an outline/detailed specification; show experience and enhancement in some (scope dependent) of the following discipline-specific practical skills: in using appropriate engineering analysis software and IT tools; In designing and carrying out laboratory experiments using suitable techniques and procedures with due regard to safety; In testing design ideas in the laboratory/workshop with due regard to safety; show experience and enhancement of the following key skills: Oral/written communication; Project management; Time management; Computing and IT (scope dependent); Self-discipline and self-motivation.

Timetabled teaching activities

These modules include 20 hours of tutorials. Required self-study: 280 hours
