This course falls naturally into three parts:
Part One consists of a design activity where a small team of students develop a design concept and specification for a device capable of satisfying a broadly specified task.
Part Two comprises the procurement of appropriate resources and the design and construction of the device in accord with the design specification developed in Part One.
Part Three covers the testing of the device and encourages the student to reflect on the activities and outcomes of the work conducted in Part One and Part Two above.
This course contains a mandatory residential school for external students and mandatory on-campus laboratories or practical classes for on-campus students.
