Postgraduate projects

The aim of the project, and associated dissertation, is to provide students with the opportunity to undertake individual research of a technical, management or combined nature at Masters level. The essence of the work is that students are able to demonstrate their ability to undertake their own piece of independent research, set their own goals and keep to their own working schedules.

For details concerning the requirements for the project/dissertation component of an MSc programme, please refer to the relevant module descriptor and ELE.  As they become available, ELE pages will be updated with project lists, instructions and deadlines.
