Module description 

This module enables you to demonstrate professional competence in a substantial robotics-related task and to apply material learned in other components of the degree programme. Projects are chosen from staff suggestions or are developed from your original ideas. The project may be completed in industry in the form of a work placement under the lead supervision of an academic member of staff from the School.

The aims of this module are to:

  • allow you to carry out a substantial task of your own choosing, in an area appropriate to their degree programme
  • allow you to demonstrate your competence as computing professionals, and to apply what you have learnt in the other components of your degree programme
  • facilitate independent work on a substantial individual robotics project, including background research and project management

On successful completion of this module, you should be able to:

  • Carry out a substantial individual robotics-related task, including appropriate background research, demonstrating a professional approach
  • Work independently, prioritising different components of the work and managing a large project effectively
  • Present work undertaken both orally and in a formal project report, justifying decisions taken and evaluating outcomes

Teaching and assessment:
