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.
Propose a feasible course of action in order to achieve a technical objective, including a rational program sequence and timing.
Select appropriate components and equipment.
Construct, test and modify a system as appropriate.
Monitor the progress achieved with respect to a designed program sequence.
Document the construction of a system to ensure repeatability.
Critically review the final system and the documentation produced.
