To provide an experience of project execution, management and reporting as close as possible to that likely to be encountered in UK industry.

Learning Outcomes:
After successful completion of this unit students will be able to:demonstrate a systematic approach to project work and a commitment to attaining the milestones and deliverable that the plan contains, write technical project reports, deliver oral reports, respond confidently to questions arising from their written and oral reports, demonstrate initiative and the willingness to take personal responsibility, demonstrate a critical awareness of the principal problems limiting progress/performance in the technical area of the project, outline the range of technique/solutions currently being brought to bear on these problem, explain the way in which their chosen approach builds on or compliments the current techniques/solutions, make where necessary engineering judgements in the face of incomplete information, demonstrate self-direction in tackling and solving problems.

To analyse complex problems breaking them down into a set of simpler problems which are tractable in the context of the knowledge, skills and facilities available to the student - facilitated and assessed; To synthesise solutions to problems from existing knowledge and understanding - facilitated and assessed; To identify and acquire knowledge and understanding directly relevant to the solution of a problem integral to the student's project - facilitated and assessed; To author and produce written reports to a technical and literary standard consistent with the normal requirements of UK industry -facilitated and assessed; To design and deliver oral reports appropriate to an engineering audience - facilitated and assessed; To manage research, design, and/or development projects in an effective and professional way - facilitated and assessed; To operate within the appropriate code of professional conduct, recognising obligations to society, the profession and the environment - facilitated and assessed.

Students will execute their project following closely the plan submitted in Semester 2. Students will be allowed to propose modifications of the plan but a closely argued case for such modifications must be submitted to the project supervisor. If the modifications are approved by the supervisor then the modified work plan will supersede the original plan and all subsequent progress will be judged against it. A written Final Report will be submitted in September and a detailed oral presentation of this report will be made.
