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 thereby allowing for greater value added to the student’s learning. The Faculty 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 Faculty that students have access to all facilities. This principle often generates exciting cross-disciplinary project work. Our Automotive and Motorsport students have the added benefit of access to our own dedicated facility at the Pembrey Racing Circuit, which allows us to test suspension systems, undertake data acquisition measurements, and test our two-wheel and four-wheel performance vehicles. The Built and Natural environment students take full advantage of our coastal location for field work, reflecting a particular research strength in that school. 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.
