Assessment methods

To cater for the wide-ranging content of our courses and the varied learning preferences of our students, we offer a range of assessment methods on each programme. Assessment techniques vary from module to module to reflect relevant assessment approaches and the key learning points of each topic. The majority of modules have a single piece of written coursework which is submitted three weeks after teaching on that module has been completed. Analysis and problem solving skills are assessed through a combination of unseen written exams, case study reports, coursework assignment submissions and an individual project. There are exams in 'Manufacturing Management' and 'Safety and Reliability' and time-constrained assessments in 'Project Management' and 'Operations Research'. 'Preparing for Project' has a multi-part assessment framework, allowing you to present and defend your project proposal in written and oral form. The project itself involves an 18,000 word dissertation.
