Module overview

This module is a 30 credit independent research project allows you to embark on a program of independent reading that will help prepare you for their PhD or EngD project in the second and

subsequent years of the program.

The module is offered in association with the iPhD, Engd(s) and Centres for Doctoral Training run by the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment. This 30-credit assessment is coursework-only: a single 7500-word report written in the style of an extended journal paper.

It is not compulsory to include a practical component, but many of the better projects will do so. An example would be attempting to replicate a relevant simulation model from the literature or an area of experimental work.

You should read this document in conjunction with the related module outlines: Individual Research Review (7.5ECTS/15CATS) and Individual Research Exercise (2.5ECTS/5CATS) to ensure that you have selected the most appropriate module for your needs.

Important dates for the module:

There are three major milestones: submitting a project brief, submitting a draft report, and submitting the final report. You should agree these submission dates with your supervisor at the outset. This module can be studied during both S1 or S2 to allow you to manage your workload on other required modules.

Attendance and contribution - It is expected that your success will be influenced by your attendance at supervisory meetings and your contribution to the debate.
