Module Content

Depends on project.

Methods of Teaching/Learning

A project is a mandatory module for all students wishing to graduate. Students are expected to arrange a project with a supervisor before the end of the first few weeks of the Autumn Semester. Most project ideas come from the supervisors but students who wish to do a project of their own only need to find a member of the academic staff who is willing to supervise them. Students are expected to plan their own use of time with feedback from their supervisors. Most laboratories are available for student use during normal working hours in term time.
