Learning and Teaching
The taught modules are normally each delivered in 'block mode' over a four week period. In the first two weeks students engage in seminars, tutorials and hands-on practical workshops. In the final two weeks students carry out independent tutorial study and assessed coursework activities, either individually or as part of a group.
Additional Teaching Information
The taught module content will be supplemented by guest seminars from industrial experts in the fields of engineering and business management. These modules are assessed through a combination of practical workshop sessions, independent coursework, and group projects.
Indicative Proportional Mix of Time in Classes, Tutorials/Seminars/Labs, and Private Study in a Teaching Semester
Typically, about 50% of contact teaching time is scheduled for classroom teaching, with the remaining 50% scheduled for tutorials and practical workshops. Most modules will also devote a portion of this time to other activities such as computer practicals, case studies and invited speakers.
