A major component of the course is the project module. This is an extensive piece of research work in an applications domain relevant to your academic or professional interests.

It is intended to provide you with an opportunity to undertake a major investigation and produce a major dissertation on the outcome of the work. Assessment of the project will be based on this dissertation and presentations of the work.

The work carried out during the project is expected to have a strong research component and will, in many cases, be appropriate in forming the basis of further academic research - for example a PhD programme.
