Module Content & Assessment

Indicative Content
Students will work on a major project, the work on which will be co-ordinated by the tutors. The student having selected a project will with their tutor agree a provisional project specification.
The student must research the project to produce a research manual, a final functional specification, and project plan over the course of the project. The precise nature of the documentation provided will vary depending on the type of project (Research based or Development based). The project plan drafted by the student in collaboration with their tutor details the other project milestones. E.g. the design specification is due at the start of the second term. All remaining documentation is due on the completion date of the project. Final project evaluation by all the tutors takes place at the end of the second semester.
During the course of the year, the students will make individual presentations on progress at various pre-determined evaluation points. Where the project is research-only, appropriate project milestones and documentation are agreed between the tutor and student.
