|Module code||EPR 400|
|Faculty||Faculty of Engineering, Built Environment and Information Technology|
This module entails the individual completion of a major engineering design project from concept to delivery. The student has to demonstrate the ability to develop a project concept into a completed final product that meets given requirements. The module focuses on the formulation of an engineering problem, the development of appropriate technical requirements and specifications (captured in a formal project proposal), project planning, design, implementation, verification that requirements are met, and completion of a technical project of a given nature, scope and complexity. The module requires the student to perform engineering design from first principles. At project completion, the student has to validate the actual design performance in real-world conditions against the design requirements and specifications. The design and results are documented in a major technical report, and the work is defended at a final oral examination and demonstration.
