Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
The students are given a detailed project guidelines document and are met by the module leader before starting the project.. They propose their own projects. This is done in collaboration with industry. The nature of the project depends on the course and the student’s interest. From the issue of the project booklet and project brief the student will take ownership of the project. This will mean taking responsibilty for developing a time-plan which the student should, on a regular basis, reflect on. An important element of the student work is the log book. This should be a project log along being used as a reflective learning log. At regular meetings with the project supervisor the student will use the log as his/her record of PDP activity.

Embedding of employability/ PDP/ scholarship skills
Effort is made to relate individual project to real life in industry. The project, in particular is a good way of learning how to research a subject and implement an idea.
Assessment (formative and summative)
Assessment is based on log book, presentation and two written reports. Details are explained in the project guidelines. Progress of the project is monitored regularly and the students are provided with regular feedback from the project supervisor and the project panel.
Research/ teaching linkages
Where possible, projects are linked to the supervisor’s line of research and in some case are industry based with joint supervision by a member of academic staff and industry.
Supporting equality and diversity
Students individual requirement are taken into account. Support is available to disabled and international students.
Internationalisation
International symbols and standards are employed. Many staff are involved in international collaborations
