Lecture Syllabus

There are three formal lectures concerning project research, group work and prototype presentation.


Students will undertake a single piece of work over Autumn and Spring terms, presenting a prototype of their application mid-way through the project. The work constitutes 60 credits and thus should occupy about 2 days per week. The project will be supervised by a member of staff, who also sets the initial parameters of the project.

Every student will be individually assessed on their approach to the work as well as their achievement.
Assessment of the project will take the following form:
(a) Prototype demonstration - 20%
(b) Project - 80% (Documentation - 20%, Application - 60%)

After project submission students will attend individual assessment interviews, where they will be asked to demonstrate and discuss their projects with two examiners.
