Module Content

A report will be written to:

(i)         describe the work carried out by the student.  This description need not be historical (in contrast to a log, which is a record of daily or weekly events), but should report on the project(s) carried out;



(ii)        analyse the total experience of working in a Professional environment, and to evaluate its contribution to the development of the student as a person and as a future Professional Engineer.





The report should be produced and presented in a professional style.  Typically it will be up to 6000 words, plus up to 2 pages of diagrams, but this is not prescriptive.
Methods of Teaching/Learning

Two copies of the report must be submitted to the Professional Training Secretary by 12:00 on the first Friday of the Semester immediately following the end of the placement. Normally placements start in the Summer and the deadline is at the start of the Autumn Semester in the following year.

The report will be marked by the University, on a scale S, A, B, C, D, E, F.

S Outstanding
A Excellent
B Very Good
C Good (or Average)
D Acceptable but below average
E Inadequate, but compensation possible
F Outright Fail

The marking will be undertaken by the Visiting Tutor for the Company, and one other tutor. Reports submitted late will have the mark reduced by 20% compound for each week or part week of lateness.
