You will plan and conduct a small project based around a simulation or a short experimental study. You will be given a topic and a short description, and you will be working within a small group.

The work should include consideration of the technical relevance/justification for the study, a detailed literature survey, development of an investigative method, collection of results, discussion and presentation of conclusions.

In addition to the technical aspects, a significant part of this time should be spent in planning and managing the project using the techniques covered in the module.

This mini project forms a vehicle for you to practice and demonstrate use of project planning methods described in the lectures for this module and research methods relevant to the nature of the work.


The laboratory and computing resources of the School of Engineering as well as the library resources of the University are available to support your project. If you need to work in a laboratory, ensure that your activities meet health and safety requirements before starting work.
