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 double module takes the form of an individual project in which the student investigates 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 examination will be held at the end of the module to test understanding of the basic principles of the project.
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
