Further information on descriptions Description: Aims:
To provide an opportunity for our students to broaden their international perspective by conducting a supervised research project in an overseas host institution.
Students should be exposed to the nature of academic research, and develop skills in tackling unresolved science and engineering problems.
The students will have the opportunity to develop advanced computation or experimental skills, for example in the preparation and analysis of samples, or mathematical modelling.
To develop and refine the skills required for the presentation of research findings in the form of a formal report.

Learning Outcomes:
Students will learn to devise a work plan, undertake the necessary background reading and preparation, prepare necessary materials, carry out appropriate safety assessments and carry out their work plan in consultation with their supervisor. Students will gain an insight into the different approaches and working practices employed in a non-UK laboratory.

Acquisition and critical assessment of technical information from original reference material. Development and evaluation of experimental and/or mathematical research techniques. The ability to carry out a risk assessment of work to conducted in a research laboratory.

Laboratory research under supervisor guidance, including aspects of : safety, project specific techniques, and report preparation.
