Aims and Fit of Module

The module aims to give students the opportunity to work in a guided but independent fashion to explore a substantial problem in depth, making practical use of principles, techniques and methodologies acquired elsewhere in the course. It also gives experience of carrying out a large piece of individual work and in producing a dissertation. It finally enhances communication skills, both oral and written.

Learning outcomes

After completing the module students should be able:
A. specify a substantial problem, and produce a plan to address the problem
B. manage their time effectively so as to carry out their plan
C. locate and make use of information relevant to their project
D. design a solution to a substantial problem
E. implement and test their solution
F. evaluate in a critical fashion the work they have done, and to place it in the context of related work
G. prepare and deliver a formal presentation
H. structure and write a dissertation describing their projects.

Method of teaching and learning

Students and their supervisors can decide delivery pattern. Some academic supervisors have a group meeting and the other may have one-by one meeting with students.
The time schedule is slightly different from one individual academic staff to another. Usually there is weekly meeting for all supervisors for his/her students.
