Research and Development Project 3
Unit code: HET305
|Credit points||12.5 Credit Points|
Aims and objectives
To develop within the student:
- An understanding of the scientific research method.
- Practical research skills.
- Practical design and development skills in a research environment.
ContentStudents will undertake a substantial project, usually as part of a team of students or based within a research group in the university or external industrial research establishment. A variety of projects will be made available to the student. In exceptional cases, students may negotiate to pursue a project of their own with the agreement of the subject convener.
While projects will be of a substantial scientific research nature, they are generally expected to include the need to develop hardware or software systems. A regular seminar series, featuring key internal and external researchers, may be offered. These seminars could cover specific research topics or aspects of research project management and generic research skill development.
