Module description (including outline content):

The project provides students with the opportunity to carry out a significant piece of work that reflects the aims and outcomes of their specific programme. It provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate practical and analytical skills present in their programme of study; to work innovatively and creatively; to synthesise information, ideas, and practices to provide a quality solution, together with an evaluation of that solution. The project should meet some real need in a wider context.Students will demonstrate an ability to self-manage a significant piece of work and will undertake a self-evaluation of the process.Students will be expected to demonstrate appropriate and proactive project management and written/verbal presentation skills throughout the period of the project. As well as analysing, designing, delivering and appraising a product of suitable quality, they will be expected to undertake research, analysis, design, implementation, verification, evaluation and reporting pertinent to the project.

Indicative Content:

The range of projects will be wide. Projects are obtained from a variety of sources including internal academic proposals, external organisation suggestions, and a number from students themselves.The deliverables will include:

  1. A main report which will include: *
  • elucidation of the problem and the objectives of the project
  • an in-depth investigation of the context and literature, and where appropriate, other similar products
  • where appropriate, a clear description of the stages of the life cycle undertaken
  • where appropriate, a description of how verification and validation were applied at these stages
  • where appropriate, a description of the use of tools to support the development process
  • a critical appraisal  of the project, indicating the rationale for any design / implementation decisions, lessons learnt during the project, and evaluation (with hindsight) of the project outcome and the process of its production (including a review of the plan and any deviations from it)
  • a description of any research hypothesis


  1. A set of appendices that are referred to within the main report, and which contain the substantive work on the project, including product deliverables, such as requirements and design specifications and other project documents (project contract, inform consent, ethics review form etc.).
  2. A product demonstration shortly after the submission of the main report

Learning outcomes:

  1. Apply theoretical and practical concepts from the programme of study to the construction of a solution to a practical problem. (Initial and Final)
  2. Carry out research and analysis to support the project requirements. (Initial)
  3. Plan and self-manage the work. (Initial and Final)
  4. Assess the potential global impact of the work (Initial)
  5. Present the work using a report in which the process and product are described, analysed, and critically evaluated. (Final)
  6. Present and defend the work in a formal demonstration (Final)
