Module content and teaching

Principal aims

The Group Project gives students valuable experience of project development work within a team. This parallels the type of work Engineers are frequently expected to do in industry and encourages students to develop and/or work to specifications, keep within a budget and work in a given time-scale.

Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module the student should be able to: Design and prototype a product or investigate the feasibility of a product within an agreed budget and timescale. Ideally the product is intended for multiple manufacture in a competitive marketplace. Students on the Civil Engineering version will learn more of the design process, and will be prepared for work after graduation in design teams concerned with the inception, concept design and detailed design of construction works; Demonstrate an ability to work as a member of a multidisciplinary team in achieving a set of shared objectives as defined by the scope of the allocated project; 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

All terms. This module includes 20 hours of tutorials.Required self-study and project hours: 280 hours
