On-campus block of classes
This module provides students with an opportunity to undertake individually a research work of substantial amount to discover why certain aspects of electrical engineering science are what they may be. This will require a student to perform complex experimental work where he/she can set up the experiment, calibrate the measuring instruments and measure data. The acquired data can then be analysed and interpreted through calculation exercises and graphical representations of computer generated data. This information will then be synthesized to be presented in the form of written final year report.
As part of this research work the student will be required to undertake an investigation in the industry in the area where his/her research work can be applied and identify the improvement or optimization opportunities that his/her research can bring to the industry concerned.
On completion of the module, students will be expected to be able to:
|1||Solve engineering problems|
|2||Apply scientific and engineering knowledge|
|3||Design and conduct investigations and experiments.|
|4||Apply appropriate engineering methods, skills and tools, including Information Technology|
|5||Communicate technical information professionally and effectively|
|6||Work effectively as an individual|
|7||Demonstrate competence to engage in independent learning|
Design Project: 100%
The module prepares students on integrating theory of engineering science with practical experimental work so that they can experience the hands-on approach of engineering in the industry and the significance of combining practical work with scientific and engineering knowledge. All outcomes will be assessed by means of assessing the Independent work under supervision and the submission of the research project.
