Further information on descriptions Description: Aims:
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.

Learning Outcomes:
On successful completion of this unit the student will be able to:
* Plan, organise and conduct an engineering project to meet the requirements of the initial aims.
* Present the project work via written documentation and oral presentations.

Skills:
Problem solving; written communication; oral communication; IT; working independently.

Content:
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.
