Description of module content:

The module is intended to facilitate the undertaking of group projects such as the BMFA/BAE Systems ‘Payload Challenge’ or Formula Student within a programme curriculum, and hence the exact content is dictated by the project or competition to which it is linked. The content in all cases is one of a design-and-build nature, and this is expected to be generally appropriate to the programme of which it is part. Because it is expected to be externally-referenced, the project offered in this module may change from year to year, at the discretion of the module leader, and/or programme leader on which the module is offered.

Learning Outcomes for module:

On completion of this module you will be able to:
LO1: analyse a set of requirements, produce appropriate design concepts to meet them, and make informed judgements on the adequacy of alternative proposals.
LO2: develop an efficient design embodiment for an engineering system, by appropriate selection and
application of formal engineering design methods.
LO3: produce detail design drawings to appropriate standards.
LO4: demonstrate an understanding of modern team-based development environments
