MEng Group Project (860H1)

45 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

Autumn and spring teaching

The MEng Group Project is a multi-disciplinary team project where you will take on an engineering challenge of industrial interest.

Your team will need to specify, design, construct, manufacture, test and/or commission an engineering system, product, or process.

Your team must meet specifications, targets, milestones, report and presentation deadlines within a set budget. You’ll apply scientific, technological, engineering and project management principles.

The module is designed to give you an holistic understanding of system design and experience in team-working through a mock industrial environment.

Contact hours and workload

This module is approximately 450 hours of work. This breaks down into about 266 hours of contact time and about 184 hours of independent study. The University may make minor variations to the contact hours for operational reasons, including timetabling requirements.

We regularly review our modules to incorporate student feedback, staff expertise, as well as the latest research and teaching methodology. We’re planning to run these modules in the academic year 2024/25. However, there may be changes to these modules in response to feedback, staff availability, student demand or updates to our curriculum. We’ll make sure to let you know of any material changes to modules at the earliest opportunity.
