Description including Unit Aims

The aim of the Group Project is to give students returning from a year abroad, where they were unable to undertake a group project, experience of working in a team. Each team, which typically consists of three or four students, is given the same design specification in order to create a competitive environment. The design exercise is spread over a fifteen-week period, and emphasis is placed on effective project planning and management in order to build a working demonstration in the time available.

  1. work in a team
  2. lead a team effectively
  3. plan and manage a project
  4. manage the project budget
  5. undertake research as necessary
