Module Delivered in 4 programme(s)
Module Coordinator: GER KELLY
Module Author: GER KELLY
Module Description: This module requires the student to deliver a solution to an engineering problem. The student, as part of a team, must consider hazards and safety as part of their solution and manufacture. The solution is the manufactured and commissioned. Each project is presented to staff, fellow colleagues and the general public at the annual exhibition.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Carry out a hazard analysis and write a safety statement for the manufacture and testing of the proposed solution
LO2 Purchase, obtain or gather any components/material required to manufacture the resulting design
LO3 Manufacture, commission and test the solution
LO4 Communicate and summarise project results via an oral presentation and participation at the Annual Project Exhibition
LO5 Prepare and present a project report to standards expected of a practising engineer.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations
This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named CIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).
No recommendations listed
Incompatible Modules
These are modules which have learning outcomes that are too similar to the learning outcomes of this module. You may not earn additional credit for the same learning and therefore you may not enrol in this module if you have successfully completed any modules in the incompatible list.
No incompatible modules listed
