Module information

Syllabus

This is a 30-credit module that will carry out a technical challenge within the context of the student's company. The work will be supervised by both an academic and industrial supervisor, with the industrial supervisor taking on most of the day-to-day technical supervision.

The student will be required to document the work through a portfolio that documents the problem specification, the design stages, the implementation, the evaluation and reflection on the project planning and outcomes.

Learning and teaching methods

The students will have bi-weekly meeting with their Academic Supervisors and frequent meetings with their Industrial supervisors (at least weekly) within the workplace.

Disclaimer: The University makes every effort to ensure that this information on its Module Directory is accurate and up-to-date. Exceptionally it can be necessary to make changes, for example to programmes, modules, facilities or fees. Examples of such reasons might include a change of law or regulatory requirements, industrial action, lack of demand, departure of key personnel, change in government policy, or withdrawal/reduction of funding. Changes to modules may for example consist of variations to the content and method of delivery or assessment of modules and other services, to discontinue modules and other services and to merge or combine modules. The University will endeavour to keep such changes to a minimum, and will also keep students informed appropriately by updating our programme specifications and module directory.
