Assessment for Year 1

Our assessment strategies are as varied as our teaching. We're aware that you might prefer to demonstrate your learning in different ways, so our methods of assessment are designed to give you opportunities to shine through a variety of methods. These methods include continuous assessment in the form of frequent coursework across each term, as well as written work, poster presentations, illustrative sketches, and traditional examinations. Our innovative forms of assessment delivery have recently been recognised by professional engineering bodies. 

In Year 1, your assessed performance does not count towards your final degree. We therefore use this first year to expose you to the range of assessment-types that you may meet as you progress through your degree. You will also receive instruction in areas like report-writing and presentations to secure your knowledge and capacity to perform. You’ll use these skills in the group work assessments and competition opportunity presented to you in this initial year of study.

Assessment for Year 2

In Year 2, you will be allocated to a small design consultancy team that will work together to present assessed design reports and also to a small team in order to design and evaluate renewable energy technological solutions to meet specific performance and economic criteria. Within these team exercises you will also be able to demonstrate your individual achievement through your design solution and performance evaluation applied to a complex design challenge. Other module assessments will involve traditional examinations, small regular tests and tailored coursework problems.

Assessment for Year 3

Year 3 assessment is dominated by your double credit project model. This large piece of assessed work will enable you to apply the skills set that you have acquired to pursue and be assessed in projects that use your computational skills, your software manipulation skills, your data manipulation skills and your practical laboratory skills, as determined to a greater or lesser extent by you. Beyond this, your independent module option selection will determine your remaining assessment types. If you have a preferred method of being assessed, it may be that you select your optional modules to support your success in this academic year.

Assessment for Year 4

The Engineering Group Project presents a significant module assessed in this academic year. This module combines many of the assessment tools that you have been exposed to in previous years of study and may include presentation delivery, report writing, computational work, data processing. These assessments aim to demonstrate your graduate skill set. Further to this, you once again have the freedom to select modules and tailor selection to enable you to demonstrate your full graduate capability as assessed by the strategies targeted through your module selection.

Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring and review of modules. Where this activity leads to significant change to a programme and modules, the University will endeavour to consult with affected students. The University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. Availability of optional modules may be restricted owing to timetabling, lack of demand, or limited places. Where this is the case, you will be asked to make alternative module choices and you will be supported during this process.
