We blend lectures with seminars, practical exercises, labs, case studies, simulations, and industrial games to encourage teamwork and practical grounding of the course material. Technology enabled learning, e-learning and forum activities also support classroom learning. Class sizes are kept small with around 30 students in each, to encourage interaction. Larger scale lectures are delivered for some modules and are backed up by seminar and syndicate activities.
40 hours per week during module weeks (9.00am – 6.30pm).
There are 9 x modules over the course of the year. Between modules, you will have workshops, supervisor meetings, industrial visits, and will be working on Post Module Assignments and your dissertation.
