Module Description

 

BE1170 - Project, Programme and Portfolio Management (CORE, 20 Credits)

This module aims to allow students to evaluate projects, develop proposals for project management, and understand the dynamics associated with project teams within their own professional practice/industrial context. Students will learn about the nature of project management together with appropriate approaches, skills, tools and techniques that they can use as a practicing project manager. The module will consider projects within the wider context of programmes and portfolio management. Students will be assessed on their knowledge and understanding of the curriculum by coursework. The coursework will be designed to enable students to demonstrate their ability to evaluate and apply theory to the management of projects through their life-cycle. Students will be provided with feedback on their performance both throughout the module (formative feedback) and on completion of the coursework. Feedback will support students’ learning by helping them to self-assess their level of understanding; thus providing them an opportunity to refocus their self-directed study.

BE1172 - Project Risk & Value Management (CORE, 20 Credits)

This module will introduce the general theories of decision making, risk management and the management of value as part of the design, briefing and quality-modelling process. The inter-relationship of these three elements of the module will be emphasised. Each element (decisions, risk and value) will then be approached in terms of its practical application to project situations, and as a result, decision-making, value management, and risk management techniques will be introduced, applied and critically evaluated in project contexts. The module will be assessed by coursework. Students will be provided with feedback on their performance both throughout the module (formative feedback) and on completion of the coursework. Feedback will support students’ learning by helping them to self-assess their level of understanding; thus providing them an opportunity to refocus their self-directed study.

EN0765 - MSc Engineering Project (CORE, 60 Credits)


This module allows the student to engender a spirit of enquiry into a practical or theoretical dissertation. It includes an aspect of information retrieval and critical appraisal; development of practical skills and/or discussion of results; and an opportunity to compose a thesis or research style paper and to deliver a presentation on the project.

A series of introductory lectures will provide the student with advice and guidance on general aspects of research, project management and report writing skills relevant to the project.

The project involves the student engaging in a substantial amount of individual independent work, under the guidance of the academic supervisor. The student will be required to update the supervisor with regard to progress on their project work in regular tutorial meetings. This will enable the supervisor to review and monitor progress and to provide formative feedback on the development of the project.

Summative assessment is through two components:


The first component is a thesis or research style paper. The choice of assessment (thesis or paper) is determined via negotiation between the supervisor and the student. The thesis will notionally be a report detailing an engineering style project (including apparatus, method, results, discussion and conclusion). The research paper will follow a 6 page style journal publication. The second component of assessment is a presentation on the project.

EN0767 - Engineering Research and Project Management (CORE, 20 Credits)


Throughout the world of science, engineering, technology and business, the ability to pursue research is seen as a requisite for continued career progression in the appropriate subject discipline. This module introduces students to the nature of research and the processes involved in carrying out research. General research approaches and methods for research will be introduced including literature searching, evaluation and reviewing. This general introduction will be followed by the inclusion of topics specifically designed to meet the requirements of an engineering programme of study.

The research approaches will be introduced in the context of conducting a project, so the project management process will be considered. Students will explore and use a number of tools and techniques that are in general use in the field of project management to ensure that a project is completed within the required time limit, within the budget and to specification.

As an integral part of this module students will develop a range of generic academic skills that will support them on this and other modules in their programme of study.

The module will be delivered through lectures and knowledge will be consolidated in seminar sessions. Summative assessment of the module will be through a group assignment (40%) in project management, and the production of an individual project proposal (60%).Formative feedback will be provided in seminars.

EN0771 - Product Design and Development (CORE, 20 Credits)

This module will develop the student’s ability to develop innovative products using systematic design processes, including digital 3D design, analysis and manufacturing techniques.

Scheduled lectures by the module team will be supplemented by peer presentations, case studies, directed learning and where possible guest speakers who are experts in the field. Knowledge will be consolidated in laboratory and seminar sessions.

The module is assessed by a written technical report on an individual product design and optimization project (50%) and a group presentation on a group product development project (50%). The assessment is intended to allow students to experience and demonstrate their depth and level of understanding of the design, analysis and manufacturing processes. Written feedback will be provided on the individual and group project. Formative feedback will be provided in the laboratories and seminars via one to one and group discussions.

 

EN0772 - Engineering Management Data Analysis (CORE, 20 Credits)


Analysis of data is an important task in many disciplines. Trends, correlation of variables, quality control and minimization of hazardous events are some examples of application of data analysis.  This module provides the students with in-depth knowledge of data analysis with a focus on engineering management through theoretical models that can be implemented on commercially available computer software tools.

The module extends data analysis to incorporate modelling of engineering problems involving uncertainty involving multiple criteria considerations.  The technical aspects of data analysis and the probabilistic modelling of problems supports the making of defensible decisions involving techno-economic, social and other criteria.

Through lectures and laboratory sessions the students will learn to analyse a range of engineering management problems, and will build appropriate probabilistic models to support and arrive at sound decisions for non-trivial problems with the aid of computer software tools. Assessment of the module will consist of a formative written report on an engineering management data analysis problem and a summative element (100%). Written feedback will be provided for both elements of the assessment. In addition, formative feedback will also be provided in the laboratories.

IS0738 - Technology Entrepreneurship (CORE, 20 Credits)

Teaching will be based on a range of briefings and discussions with regular session devoted to feedback on the production and development of a personal business idea.

Support from business will be integral in the teaching

  • Visiting expert speakers from the fields of Banking, Accountancy, Law, e-business
  • Marketing/PR and Small Business support
  • Inputs from people involved in their own business start up to give advice and to identify problems
  • Student project work based on real business start-up scenarios
Students will also be required to conduct a detailed evaluation of the information resources available to support small business start-up.

Students will maintain a business start-up research portfolio that demonstrates studies and thinking relating to aspects of business concept development/review, product/service definition, marketing and MR and business finance issues. The portfolio will include a detailed business plan for the start of a small business to exploit the defined business concept and a literature review of the information resources available to support their business start-up investigation. Formative feedback will be given during the portfolio building stages of the module delivery.

The module will conclude with each student giving a personal presentation of their business plan to the tutors
