To develop practical evaluation of professional engineering activity in a chosen specialisation. To extend the student`s ability to plan, implement and review appropriate activities in a large and academically demanding project, so as to achieve an agreed set of objectives in a given time scale.

Learning Teaching & Assessment Strategy:
Series of project seminars looking at key general skills for projects. Research/experiment/theory and/or analysis/simulation with verification and/or validation explored in formal tutorials with project supervisor. Practical skills, where appropriate, developed in laboratory sessions. Cognitive and personal skills developed in solving and/or design exercises supported by members of academic and technical staff. Oral feedback is given during tutorial sessions with project supervisor. Presentation and viva assessments will examine the application of practical skills to the knowledge base of the module. The formal assessment will examine the wider learning outcomes expressed in the descriptor.
