For this course, every student is required to study a specific topic under the supervision of a member of the academic staff. This is laid down as a compulsory element of the degree course by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers for all students to obtain an accredited degree leading to Incorporated or Chartered Engineer qualification.
The work will be of an investigative nature and may have analytical, numerical, design and experimental elements involved in it. The initiative for carrying out all aspects of the work rests with each student.
Individual students can carry out an investigation into a problem either chosen from a list of suitable problems proposed by individual members of staff or of their own suggestion, in which case it must be approved by the Module Coordinator and have an agreed supervisor. Projects may be undertaken individually or in pairs but will be individually assessed.
|Taught by:||Dr. Paul Fromme (Module Coordinator)|
