Last Updated , October 29, 2002The following list details the projects available for the level 4 design project in 2002. It is updated regularly so please keep an eye on the Notices section. We currently have enough places for about 160 students, so there should be plenty to go around.
You will be given a budget for your projects. This budget is to cover all items including travel, consumables and capital purchases. The budget is as follows:
If there is something you would like to do and it is not listed below then you are more than welcome to suggest it as a project. If you do so, then you will need to find an academic who is willing to supervise the project. You need ensure that the project is feasible within the time, resources and cost constraints.
I would like to point out that it was decided by the School that it would be advantageous to have students select their projects at the end of third year, rather than waiting to confirm placement of projects at the beginning of the following year as has been done in the past. It is hoped that this may encourage background reading on the project before the beginning of the academic year (uh huh) and consequently improve outcomes.
Now that the list is essentially finalised, you need to form groups of the appropriate number and provide me with a list of 3 projects in order of preference (1 being the highest, 3 the lowest). I encourage you to speak with the supervisors first before deciding (they might be hiding some nasty secret from you). The School will endeavour to give each student their primary choice. Project placements will be decided by the individual supervisors in consultation with the level 4 coordinator.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call (in on) me.
