Aims/Description: Project work is carried out on an individual basis over two Semesters by level 4 MEng students. The project will be in the specific subject of the specialist degree. Project work is carried out with the supervision of a member or members of the academic staff and comprises an original research investigation. The project should be regarded as research training, and is chosen from a list drawn up so that students are able to pursue their own interests relating to course choices. The final year report will incorporate an introduction, relevant literature review, results and discussion and conclusions.
