Together with MEC4402 students undertake a self-guided learning task in the form of a project. It is a full year project of either a major design, theoretical, or experimental investigation. The project may be undertaken either within the department or externally with a company or research organization. In either case, an academic member of staff will act as the supervisor. While some projects may benefit from group based work it is expected that students will work individually on each project. For assessment purposes, students are required to submit a research proposal, a progress report, give an oral presentation about their work and to participate in short quizzes.
