Technical Project


This module guides a learner through the semi-independent solution and management of a technical challenge.  In general, the projects are based on measurement/control systems and allow the application, contextualisation, expansion and synthesis of the learner's knowledge/skills from previous modules.  Students with specific areas of interest are encouraged to contribute to the development of their project topic.
