After taking this module students should be able to:
- work independently on an open-ended project.
- prepare and submit a comprehensive report to meet a given deadline.
- defend the work at an oral examination.
This module takes the form of a project in which students investigate a problem under the supervision of a member of the academic staff. The nature of the problem may be experimental, theoretical, data analysis or computer modelling. The double module is open to students following Joint Honours and Major/Minor Degree Schemes.
Students are expected to plan and manage an independent programme of study, with guidance from their Supervisor, and to write a formal scientific report.
An oral presentation will be given at the end of the module to demonstrate understanding of the basic principles of the project and its wider context.
Supervisors will advise students on suitable textbooks for their project, and students are expected to conduct their own library searches to find suitable material. Primo search
