The students will be able to develop initiative, innovation and creative skills through an extended student-centred study in the practice of engineering, technology and management at professional level, involving research, integration, application, evaluation and synthesis of knowledge gained across a range of several subject areas.
It is not possible to be prescriptive about the activities that each student should undertake in each semester as this relates to the specific investigation being undertaken.
The project may take a variety of forms, and may include:
1. Critical reference to previous work on the project topic, competing theories, processes and methodologies, economic, social and market considerations
2. Analysis and modelling, which may involve computing
3. System and organisation design
5. Experimentation, verification and/or other testing and evaluation
6. Interpretation of results and concluding
The balance of the elements above will depend on the type of project work undertaken
In particular, students undertaking this module as part of an MEng degree will produce an extended set of 'recommendations for further work' which will constitute the specification for their studies in the Stage 4 project module ENG4010J
