Projects, Dissertations and Reports
Projects and dissertations provide the opportunity for independent, in-depth study of a particular topic, under the guidance of academic staff. Projects and dissertations require self-motivation and the ability to work under pressure.
Industrial group projects (PHYS355) are available to 3rd year BSc and MPhys students. They involve the planning and execution of a project to tackle a 'real' problem posed by a company or other external organisation as part of a team. For further information contact Dr. M. Hayne.
MPhys projects are compulsory for all 4th year MPhys students. They commence with a literature search over the summer holidays at the end of the 3rd year (PHYS452), while the actual project runs through most of the 4th year (PHYS451). PHYS451/2 are assessed by means of an independent learning mark (given by the supervisor) a written report and an oral examination.
Further details are available in the other tabs.
