10 Credits SPRING

Co-requisites: AER301, AER380

Aims/Description: The aim of this module is for students realise the designs that they have previously developed to produce an unmanned air vehicle to meet the requirements of a client. The module will consist of the continued evaluation of the design, the realisation of the air vehicle and its subsequent testing, followed by a review and proposals for design improvements. The module will be largely self-directed by the students - students will be expected to work outside of their current knowledge and understanding in solving this challenging engineering problem and so considerable independence, initiative and creative and critical thinking will be required.
