Module Description: The learner must undertake advanced independent added value research work through self-directed learning. The learner must develop and implement appropriate research methods and techniques for the engineering problem addressed. The learner must disseminate the research work and research outcomes through an oral presentation, poster presentation, and submission of a dissertation.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Demonstrate the ability to plan and implement self directed learning to further knowledge and understanding of an unfamiliar and/or ill defined engineering problem.
LO2 Identify and describe the performance of an engineering system through the use of appropriate mathematical/analytical/experimental/modelling methods and techniques.
LO3 Design and/or conduct experiments to analyse and interpret data.
LO4 Demonstrate the appropriate written and oral communication skills and synthesise the research work in the form of presentations, abstracts, executive summaries, technical papers and a dissertation.
LO5 Prepare a dissertation that details and evaluates the work undertaken and justifies the conclusions reached.
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 MTU module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).

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.

Requirements

This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is mandatory before enrolment in this module is allowed. You may not enrol on this module if you have not acquired the learning specified in this section.

Module Content & Assessment

Indicative Content
General
Supervised self directed learning that addresses the learning outcomes, draws on the overall curriculum content and critically evaluates a specific engineering problem.
Added value work
The learner is required to demonstrate 'added value' through identifying, applying and critically interpreting appropriate, rigorous and advanced research methods and techniques. The learner is expected to incorporate relevant aspects of engineering outside his/her own specific engineering discipline where required and appropriate.
Oral and poster presentation
Demonstrate the ability to disseminate the research work and outcomes and communicate effectively to both the engineering community and wider society, through oral and poster presentations. This will include an in-depth question and answer session.
Dissertation
Present a dissertation which communicates and disseminates the research work undertaken and the research outcomes developed. The dissertation should include the design calculations/experimental/analytical/modelling work undertaken, results of the work and how this work contributes to furthering knowledge in the specific engineering field. The learner must demonstrate a deep and fundamental understanding of the specific engineering problem addressed.
