Module overview

The Project Preparation Module will prepare students for the summer Masters Project. It will give students a grounding in the research methods and techniques they will need in order for them to plan and successfully execute and complete their project.

Part of the Module involves identifying potential areas of research, negotiating with the Programme Leader and potential supervisors. This will involve general research and the review of literature and the identification of a research question or questions. They will then develop a research plan which will be presented in summary form via a submitted coursework and a poster presentation. This will be presented via the Module Poster Exhibition at the end of the semester.

It is expected that as part of this module the students will undertake appropriate preparatory study for their summer project, e.g. learning specific new analytical, simulation or other technical skills where necessary. The module also teaches students what it is to be a professional practitioner, examining ethical and legal issues around professional practice.
