Assessment Method Generally, a combination of continuous assessment and examination is employed in each module. Continuous assessment includes class tests, library and laboratory based assignments, and individual and group project work. Some modules across all years are continuously assessed.

The content for each course is summarised on the relevant course page, along with an overview of the modules that make up the course.
Work Placement Work placement / study abroad
The industrial placement year is a significant, formative period for our mechatronics students. Involvement in the practice of engineering in an industrial setting will develop your engineering, transferable and personal skills and significantly enhance your employability on graduation. All students are therefore required to undertake a (paid) industrial work placement - normally in year 3 of the programme.
