The student normally selects the project from a list of projects proposed by the department’s staff and in the majority of cases the work has some input from industry. In some cases students may suggest their own project topic provided a member of staff is willing to adopt and supervise that project. The output from good projects is regularly presented at conferences and published in journals.
