|Module Personnel||An agreed project supervisor from the lecturing staff.|
On successful completion of this module students will be able to demonstrate a degree of specialization in a particular part of the subject area, including enhanced or new technical skills that build on theory
Demonstrate that they have engaged in research and critical understanding to an advanced level in their chosen area (examined in the project literature review and evaluation).
Demonstrate a practical understanding of how techniques of research and enquiry are used to create and interpret established knowledge.
Address a moderate sized problem and in so doing select and justify an appropriate approach, and follow the approach systematically (recognizing alternatives, selecting and justifying the approach taken at each point in the project)
Demonstrate in the technical execution of the project the required level of analysis, design, and technical skill.
To integrate the theoretical and practical knowledge of the student across all of the years of their study and provide a practical demonstration of their capability in executing a challenging project.
At the beginning of each academic year, students will be notified of the deadlines for project milestones and deliverables.
Students may either select a project from the list of project proposals put forward by the lecturing staff, or alternatively propose their own projects (in consultation with the course director).
In either case students must get the agreement of a supervisor before they will be considered as having selected a project. Supervisors may require a meeting with the student to discuss the project before accepting a supervision request. Once a supervisor agrees to supervise a project, details of the project assignment will be .
