Aims/Description: The project, performed under the supervision of either two academic supervisors, or one academic supervisor and one second external marker from an industrial partner, takes the form of a multidisciplinary investigative or design project usually with a significant industrial input. Students are divided into multidisciplinary teams and presened with the project brief by the industrialists involved. Project activities are based in the research labs of the supervisor(s) although students may also have to make use of the facilities, normally within the Department. Students hold regular minuted progress management meetings with group members rotating their group management responsibilities.

Restrictions on availability: Only available to EEE students.
