LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
The subject is based principally on content that has been developed from industry experience in designing, developing and implementing SDIs. This will be supplemented by guest presentations and seminars from industry professionals. A computer laboratory will be used to explore potential technological tools and different lab exercise that can be used to learn how to design and use different components related to SDIs. In the tutorials, students will work in groups to apply theory gained in the lectures to a real world industry case study. This learning will enable students to consolidate their knowledge in a practical and relevant way. Within their groups students will also prepare and present a minor research project on an affiliated topic of their interest selected from an extensive list.
