As a result of this course, you will be able to:
•Provide a critical assessment of relevant literature/technologies;
•Conduct an independent work either alone or as part of a large project;
•Improve skills in technical writing to provide a satisfactory report and presentation.


Overview of Learning Activities

The project is a focused piece of work and usually involves designing and building a circuit, simulation model, application software/hardware or a specified device. A project is usually defined within the framework of a larger project and your contribution will be used as input to the outcomes of the larger project. A report is required and is marked by your supervisor. The report should demonstrate your independent work, clear indication of your ability to undertake inquiry and adequate skills in technical writing and presentation.
