Aims/Description: The module demonstrates the principles of engineering design by challenging students to provide a viable solution to one of a variety of engineering industrial problems. The problems undertaken by the students are varied and are proposed, and actively supported by, various internal and external stakeholders. Students work in groups to generate possible solutions to the problem and then concentrate individual effort on different aspects of the problem. Each group is mentored by a member of academic staff and by a representative of the stakeholder.
Restrictions on availability: Restricted to students registered for MECU001, MECU009, MECU014, MECU017-018
