Summary of Content:
This project involves individual students in undertaking an original, independent, research study into an engineering topic appropriate to their specific MSc programme. The project may be undertaken on any topic which is relevant to the MSc stream, as agreed by the relevant Course Director and project tutor. In undertaking the project, students should draw on and extend material presented in the course. The project has several aims, beyond reinforcing information and methodology presented in the taught modules; the student is expected to develop skills in research, investigation, planning, evaluation and oral and written communication. Final reporting will take the form of a written account including a literature review and an account of the student’s contribution. An interim presentation will be made to academic staff.
