Module content and teaching

Principal aims

The group projects aim to give students experience of working within a team, and parallels the way engineers often work in industry. Students will integrate their knowledge and understanding in order to specify and solve a substantial engineering problem (or user need), through the creation and development of a product, process or system. The project also allows students to develop their understanding of project management, time management, ethics, sustainability, health and safety, risk and intellectual property rights. Students will develop effective communication and leadership skills.

Principal learning outcomes

Whilst no two projects will be the same all will test students in the same way, such that by the end of the module a student should be able to: • Extrapolate existing knowledge and experience and apply them in an integrated systems approach to solve a complex and unfamiliar engineering problem. • Extract and critically evaluate relevant data in order to apply engineering analysis and advanced problem solving skills, in order to complete an engineering project to the satisfaction of a customer and/or user. • Use innovative techniques, materials or methods in delivering the project. • Consider the wider context of the project including, risk, health and safety, ethics, environmental and sustainability limitations, intellectual property rights, codes of practice and standards, product safety and liability, to inform the project specification (problem brief) as relevant to the project. • Plan and manage a project from the design process to a deliverable outcome, including managing a budget and costs, and understanding the commercial, economic and social environment of the project • Demonstrate effective communication, both verbal and written, to a technical and non-technical audience. • Demonstrate the ability to work as a member of a team to achieve shared objectives within the scope of the project and monitor and adjust a personal programme of work on an on-going basis. .

Timetabled teaching activities

5 hours of Lectures. 25 hours of support from staff Project Director arranged at a mutually convenient time with the students. Meeting at convenient times throughout the normal working week. These slots are not timetabled and should not occur after 13:00 on a Wednesday. Total 30 hours
