LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
Within this subject there is a mix of learning and teaching methods employed:
- Lectures where technical content is reviewed
- Group-based time-limited workshops. Students are expected to complete reading tasks prior to these workshops. The pre-reading may or may not be based upon technical content previously delivered in lectures. Peer assessment techniques are employed within these workshops
- One of the larger assignments (take home) uses industrially relevant computer simulation packages. Computer lab time/space is made available
- When examining the wider context in which engineers operate, videos and other multimedia material are employed
- Several (>10) external speakers also place the knowledge learnt/practiced in current engineering context.
INDICATIVE KEY LEARNING RESOURCES
Lecture notes and relevant multimedia material are provided throughout the course (available for download from LMS). Students are expected to use the library, internet and other resources to research some of the topics themselves.
CAREERS / INDUSTRY LINKS
Depending on year-to-year availability and relevance to the various chosen projects, typically more than 10 external (industry) speakers participate in this course. Alongside providing valuable context to the projects and detailing current practice, these external speakers also outline current employment opportunities within the profession and give overviews of their particular industrial area.
