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

Aims: To enable students to develop a cross disciplinary or integrated engineering project, with elements of mechanical and/or electrical/electronics disciplines, guided by the integrated engineering principle.
To enable the student to effectively communicate a major piece of project work.
To give the student experience in working in a research environment or on an industry based design project.

Skills: Problem solving; numeracy; data acquisition and handling, literature review, written communication; oral communication; IT; working independently.

Content: Projects may be undertaken on an individual or a linked basis. Projects will normally contain at least 2 of the following elements - analytical, computational, experimental aspects.
