INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (ILO) / SUBJECT OBJECTIVES
On completion of this subject, the student should have:
The assessment (other than the written exam) will consist of a team Project which will be assessed via an oral exam and a team report (which together will contribute to 60% of the final mark). Each team will consist of two or three students. The oral exam will involve each student giving a 15-20 minute presentation on some aspect of the team project to an audience of experts, followed by a 5 minute question and answer session. Students will be assessed individually for this oral exam.
The team Project report is a written report of not more than 15 pages, at the end of semester, worth 36%. Students will receive marks as a team; however individual marks may be weighted based on the student’s ability to knowledgeably answer questions during the oral exam;
Oral examination 15-20 minutes per student at the end of semester, worth 24% (addressing ILOs 1and 2)
A written examination, not exceeding 3 hours, at the end of semester 40% (addressing ILOs 1and 2)
Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs) 1 and 2 are assessed in the final written examination, project submission and oral examination.
