Description: Aims:
To allow students to experience a practical research project typical of research in an academic environment. To further develop and reinforce the skills necessary for research work.

Learning Outcomes:
After studying the Unit, students should be able to:
* Demonstrate advanced experimental techniques appropriate to the chosen project;
* Record experimental observations and data in an efficient manner;
* Present results in a variety of formats and place them into context of other researchers' work;
* Demonstrate the ability to plan and conduct an experimental programme.

Skills:
Laboratory skills: manipulation, observation (T, F, A), Problem solving (T, F, A), Scientific writing (F, A), Independent working (F), Group working (F).

Content:
A research topic will be selected in conjunction with a supervising member of staff and a program of experimental work planned. In addition to the experimental aspects, appropriate library work will be conducted. Aspects of project planning, safety, report writing skills and oral presentations will be introduced as appropriate.
