Assessment method

Coursework and Assignments: Coursework and assignments are common assessment tools. Students are given specific projects or tasks related to their coursework, and they are evaluated on their ability to apply theoretical knowledge to practical problems. Practical Work: Practical laboratory sessions are a crucial part of an electrical engineering program. Students may be assessed on their ability to conduct experiments, analyse data, and draw conclusions from their findings. Reports and Technical Writing: Students may be required to write technical reports based on their laboratory work or projects. These reports assess their ability to communicate technical information effectively. Presentations: Students may be asked to give presentations on engineering topics, projects, or case studies. This assesses their communication and presentation skills, as well as their understanding of the subject matter.
