Module Description: This module develops within the learner the knowledge, know-how and skills, and competences required to successfully complete a project in accordance with an approved plan. The module requires the learner either individually or as part of a team to develop, implement and critically assess a detailed methodology to address a defined problem within a prescribed time-frame. The learner is expected to be self motivated whilst working under direction of a project supervisor and to communicate the process and outcomes of their work in a style and manner appropriate for professional practitioners in the discipline.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Display initiative, analysis and problem solving skills in developing a detailed, viable methodology for addressing an open-ended problem
LO2 Develop a prototype or conduct a feasibility study of the proposed methodology
LO3 Systematically review and adapt the design during implementation in response to practical, real-world constraints
LO4 Critically assess the outcome against, inter alia, appropriate design, safety, commercial and ethical criteria
LO5 Demonstrate the appropriate written and oral communication skills required of the professional practitioner.
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).

Project - Research Phase
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.
Co-requisite Modules
No Co-requisite modules listed

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.
