Final Year Undergraduate Project

The final year project is a crucial element of an undergraduate degree programme, as it gives students an opportunity to work on an extensive piece of work within the areas of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science. The project allows students to demonstrate their knowledge, practical/analytical skills and experience that they gain during their degree programme and to then extend these by working individually on a research or development problem. The final year project builds on the taught modules that students take during their degree programme and is undertaken independently under the guidance of a project supervisor. The project involves a substantial component of design and implementation of software and/or hardware.


MSc Project

The aim of the MSc project is to give students the opportunity to apply to a significant advanced project, the techniques and technologies, that they have learned in their lecture modules. Projects will either be significantly development based, or else have a research focus. All projects will be expected either to investigate or to make use of techniques that are at the leading edge of the field. Candidates will be asked to submit a project report on completion of the allotted project period (3 months full time). This report will be evaluated using the standard criteria for scholarly work. Projects will also include a viva where students will be required to demonstrate and defend their work.


Professional and Research Themes (Degree Apprenticeships)

This module covers the following topics: discipline topic tasters; finding, retrieving, and evaluating information; ethics, science & technology; scientific and technical writing; skills for workplace context.
