Assessment method

Our aim is to generate work that is mainly student-driven, individual, reflective and vocationally orientated. Feedback to students will occur early in the study period and continue over the whole study session, allowing for greater value added to the student’s learning. UWTSD has a principle of purchasing industry-standard facilities. Examples include our 5 axis CNC machining centre, Composites Autoclave, Engine dynamometers, Thermographic cameras, GIS mapping systems, and leading software from Solidworks, Siemens NX, ANSYS Fluent, Mapinfo, MATLAB, AutoCAD and many other specialist applications. It is a principle of the university that students have access to all facilities. This principle often generates exciting cross-disciplinary project work. Our computing students have access to state of the art High-Performance Computing (HPC) facilities, as well as leading edge development systems for computer games and mobile application development.
