Course aim

To enable graduates to develop the skills required by engineering professionals in negotiating, planning, designing, constructing, implementing, testing and reporting engineering developments, schemes or designs.

Course content

The course will utilise real projects provided by industry with industrial representatives acting as clients to the students. Different developments or projects will be offered each year. Students will first develop a tender and then produce a feasibility study for the development. The course is undertaken by the class acting as consulting companies with the management and organisation of that company being the responsibility of the students. Regular meetings with the lecturers and industry clients will review progress and guide the teams in the projects. Significant emphasis will be placed on the social, environmental, international, political and economic contexts applicable to each project.
