Teaching and Assessment
You will be taught by experts from the Department of Mechanical Engineering and throughout the year you will be taught and assessed through a combination of methods such as:
A key component of our course is the research based project. This will give you practical experience of research in your chosen field. This is a major part of your degree and you will be allocated an academic supervisor who will provide advice and guidance throughout. The research project will be assessed via a written dissertation and oral presentation.
Our students will get the opportunity to tackle real-life problems; the range of project topics is diverse and reflects the expertise of staff or your personal interest.
