To enable the student to show creativity and initiative in carrying out a demanding investigation or design project within a specific topic area.
To enable the student to synthesise information from both within the total course and from external sources.
To enable the student to communicate effectively a major piece of project work.
To give the student experience in working in a research environment or on an industry based design project.
After successfully completing this unit the student should be able to:
* plan, organise and conduct an advanced engineering project to meet the requirements of the initial aims;
* present all stages of the project work via written documentation and oral presentations.
Problem solving; numeracy; written communication; oral communication; IT; data acquisition, handling and analysis; working independently.
The final year engineering projects will either be defined as "Design" or "Research" in content. Whether classified as design or research, projects may be undertaken on an individual or a linked basis. RESEARCH PROJECTS will contain at least 2 of the 3 following elements - analytical, computational, experimental aspects. DESIGN PROJECTS will contain specification, design, analysis, manufacture and test work.
