DESCRIPTION - summary of the module content

This module aims to build your core competencies in practical workshop activities and immerse you in new technologies including LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) scanning, Virtual Reality (VR) and 3D modelling software. You will learn through industry led on-site activities, team collaboration, technical skills workshops (TSWs) and innovation workshops with inspirational entrepreneurs and chartered engineers. This module lays the foundation for both technical skills and igniting the spark of your entrepreneurial spirit to prepare you for ECM2112 and your individual (ECM3175) and group projects (ECMM102).

 

AIMS - intentions of the module

The purpose of this module is to develop an appreciation of advanced technologies and the ability to investigate innovative applications to sell to clients. Deliverables for the project require project management, self-promotion, research and development, collaboration and pitching services/products to potential clients through multimedia platforms. The entrepreneurial skills gained through experiential learning will enhance your ability to solve problems, create opportunities and help you succeed in your chosen career or commercial venture.

RE-ASSESSMENT NOTES

If a module is normally assessed entirely by coursework, all referred/deferred assessments will normally be by assignment. If a module is normally assessed by examination or examination plus coursework, referred and deferred assessment will normally be by examination. For referrals, only the examination will count, a mark of 40% being awarded if the examination is passed. For deferrals, candidates will be awarded the higher of the deferred examination mark or the deferred examination mark combined with the original coursework mark.
