Subject outline

Working on technical industry projects provides invaluable experience to you both at technical design level as well practicing important skills in teamwork, stakeholder engagement, scoping and project management. In this subject you will either work externally in an engineering capacity in a technical work placement, or will work internally in project teams on a design project set by industry or a research laboratory. EMS4WLA is to be taken in conjunction with EMS4WLB, together forming a 60CP capstone experience.
