Assessment method

We offer a broad range of learning environments, including a traditional lecture and tutorial format, student-led learning, interactive class sessions, and a substantial element of lab work. We encourage independent study, meaning that you take responsibility for your own learning.

Your study is assessed with a variety of methods, enabling you to demonstrate progress in different ways. Coursework typically includes laboratory reports, essays and oral presentations. Formal exams typically include questions that require short answers, problem-solving and design challenges. Your placement will be assessed by industrial and academic supervisors, as well as by report and oral presentation. In your final dissertation, you are individually supported by a research-active member of staff. Laboratory reports, design problems, essays and exams. Year 1 is approximately 30% exam and 70% coursework. Year 4 is approximately 70% exam and 30% coursework.
