On completion of the class, a student should be able to have demonstrated ability:

  • to pull together ideas from one or more of the classes they have undertaken
  • to build on material acquired throughout the degree course
  • to undertake independent studying, reading, writing and working
  • to display a disciplined approach to good practices in the general area of the degree course
  • to determine and successfully work to a timetable

Honours and MEng projects are substantial pieces of practical work; they may draw on any aspect of the degree course, or more widely. Topics will be suggested by and supervised by individual members of the Department’s staff.
