Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching methods including their alignment to Los
The basis of the learning and teaching will be on the reinforcement of theoretical and descriptive material as covered in lectures and tutorials practice. Lecture and tutorial material will be used to develop solutions which are then implemented practically (All examples will be capable of being implemented on the hardware that each student is issued. Individual analysis and critical evaluation of solutions will be encouraged. (LOs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

Assessment (formative and Summative)
This will consist of two design reports on a specific applications and a final formal examination. These will require a high degree of self-learning in terms of ability to evaluate and self- analyse situations and provide solutions. Students will be required to show a high degree of autonomous activity in the development of solutions. A considerable amount of self-learning will be needed to achieve an optimum solution.(LOs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).

Embedding of employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills
The use of industry standard devices and a high level of practical development will mean that the student is well prepared for the work environment. As part of their report they are encouraged to be self-critical and to reflect and review their own submissions. An amount of scholarship is required to apply the solutions to the problems in the most effective manner.

Research/Teaching Linkages
By using an active learning approach within this module the students are asked to undertake scholarly activity and research information from research publications, journals and international standards organisations. The staff teaching on the module have extensive links with industry through industrial consultancies which will be used as case studies throughout the module delivery. (LOs 3, 5, 6)


Formative Assessment:
Students will be required to show a high degree of autonomous activity in the development of solutions for both courseworks. A considerable amount of self-learning will be needed to achieve an optimum solution.(LOs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).



Summative Assessment:
This will consist of two design reports on a specific applications and a final formal examination. These will require a high degree of self-learning in terms of ability to evaluate and self- analyse situations and provide solutions.
