DESCRIPTION - summary of the module content
AIMS - intentions of the module
To provide work experience within a business or other concern operating within the energy sector, UK or world-wide. Students work on a real industrial project, aiming to meet all requirements associated with working to a defined project brief, established during the Summer placement stage, but the execution of which is extended through into the academic year. This provides an opportunity for in-depth academic study, analysis and design, that may also integrate many areas of the formally taught curriculum, in a clearly defined industry context. The module aims to encourage the use of creativity, imagination and initiative and professional conduct and discipline in executing the project.
INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (ILOs) (see assessment section below for how ILOs will be assessed)
On successful completion of this module, students should be able to demonstrate: Module Specific Skills: Through the preparation of a Industrial Project Placement Report of professional calibre and through the preparation of a research-grade project poster presentation, 1. in-depth knowledge and understanding in the subject area of the project and in related areas, that goes beyond that simply required for the competent execution of the agreed project work; 2. [D1m, D4m, D5m] that they have carried out a complete design, creation of product, service or piece of research to meet a specified need, from negotiating a specification to verification that the result meets that specification, showing creativity and justifying all decisions; 3. [US1m-US3m, E2m, E3m] that they have selected and applied appropriate mathematical methods, scientific principles or computer based methods for the modelling and analysis of an engineering problem and applied them creatively and realistically in a practical application, and 4. these are communicated effectively; Through accurate and consistent record keeping within a project log book, 5. (if appropriate) that they have selected and used laboratory instrumentation correctly; 6. (if appropriate) that they have constructed prototypes or experimental apparatus to design specifications; 7. [P7] an awareness of quality issues and the manner in which record keeping of scientific and technical results and methodology underpins these; Discipline Specific Skills: Through the preparation of a Industrial Project Placement Report of professional calibre and a research-grade project poster presentation, 8. [P2m] extensive knowledge and understanding of a wide range of engineering materials and components; 9. [E4] an analytical, systematic and creative, possibly holistic, approach to problem solving; Personal and Key Skills: 10. [S4] an awareness of the framework of relevant legal requirements governing engineering activities, including personnel, health, safety, and assessment and management of risk (including environmental risk); 11. [P4] an understanding use of technical literature and other information sources; 12. [P5] an awareness of nature of intellectual property and contractual issues; 13. [P6] an understanding of appropriate codes of practice and industry standards; 14. [S5] an understanding of the need for a high level of professional and ethical conduct in engineering. N.B.
