Individual Investigative Research Project

Module Title - Individual Investigative Research Project
Number of credits - 60

Module description 

The main focus of the dissertation project is on systems safety assurance. Some postgraduates undertake the dissertation while working for a sponsor.

Project titles are agreed between the student, the University and the sponsor, whether or not the student is a permanent employee. A project workshop held before the main project activities allows the student to learn more about finding a topic, coming up with a hypothesis and about carrying out the necessary research.

Academic project supervisors are selected from the teams at Birmingham and York in line with the requirements of the project.
