Assessment method

You are expected to attend a range of lectures and problem-solving tutorials. You also use laboratory work widely to underpin the engineering principles studied. A series of laboratory-based activities provides a practical introduction to a range of engineering disciplines. The programme provides a number of contact teaching and assessment hours (lectures, tutorials, laboratories, projects, examinations). You are also expected to spend time on your own - this self-study time is to review lecture notes, prepare course work assignments, work on projects and revise for assessments. For example, each 20-credit module typically has around 200 hours of learning time. In most cases, around 60 hours will be spent in lectures, tutorials and laboratories. The remaining learning time is for you to use to gain a deeper understanding of the subject. Each year of full-time study consists of modules totalling 120 credits, so, during one year of full-time study you can expect to have 1,200 hours of learning and assessment. One module in each year of your study, excluding your first year (Level 3), involves a compulsory one-week block delivery period. This intensive problem-solving week, provides you with an opportunity to focus your attention on particular problems and enhance your team-working and employability skills. Your programme involves a range of types of assessment including coursework assignments, laboratory work, presentations and tests. You also work in teams on design project, and in the final year you complete a major individual project, including a poster presentation and project report.
