Course handbook

Description

Provides students with the opportunity to apply the skills developed over the previous three years to an open-ended engineering problem of their choice. Projects are supervised by a member of the academic staff and may be experimental, theoretical, computational or practical in nature. An important goal is to help students develop project and time-management skills, and the ability to communicate through the report and seminar.

Multi-term sequence

This course is part of a multi-term sequence. Both Part A and Part B must be completed to meet the requirements of the sequence. Part A and Part B must be completed in consecutive terms. Students must complete Part A before completing Part B. Students must complete the sequence within a twelve month period. If students complete Part A but are unable to complete Part B within the timeframe, they must re-enrol in Part A.


Learning outcomes

On successful completion of the course students will be able to:

1. Identify engineering problems and provide solutions

2. Manage information and documentation

3. Be creative and innovative

4. Appreciate the broad range of issues which impact on engineering

5. Conduct an engineering project

6. Understand the business environment and demonstrate the ability to employ business principles within engineering projects

7. Communicate effectively with the engineering team and with the community at large

8. Understand professional and ethical responsibilities and demonstrate a commitment to them

9. Function effectively as an individual and in multidisciplinary and multicultural teams, as a team leader or manager as well as an effective

10. Demonstrate self-directed learning
