The syllabus will cover 5 or more applications of ISM (typically 4 by taught delivery, 1 or more by assignment) each year. By way of example, it is proposed that the applications to be covered in the 1st year of delivery include - 3D, astronomical, automotive, autonomous motion, environmental, homeland security, in-vivo, microfluidic.
Sample Lecture Syllabus:
Week 1: Introduction to Applications of ISM
Weeks 2,3: ISM for autonomous motion
Weeks 4,5: Environmental ISM
Weeks 7,8: ISM for homeland security
Weeks 9,10@ In-vivo ISM
Week 11: Revision classes
Week 1: Introduction to assignment - Automotive ISM
Weeks 2-10: Assignment is carried out
Week 11: Assignment due
Total Hours: 200 ( Lecture Hours 22, Seminar/Tutorial Hours 10, Feedback/Feedforward Hours 2, Formative Assessment Hours 1, Summative Assessment Hours 1, Other Study Hours 4, Programme Level Learning and Teaching Hours 4, Directed Learning and Independent Learning Hours 156 )
Requirements of Entry
Continuous assessment will be carried out using a short assignment for each 2 week application. In each of the 2 exercises, assessment will be based on supervisor and/or peer judgment of individual/group performance and deliverables.
As defined by the University of Edinburgh.
Intended Learning Outcomes of Course
By the end of this course students will be able to:
■ Prepare or assimilate a detailed ISM system specification or application requirement
■ Compare, contrast and select the most appropriate ISM technique(s) to meet the requirements of an application or range of applications
■ Design an ISM system to meet an overall system specification or application requirement
■ Integrate the results of a range of ISM modalities to provide a "whole is greater than the sum of the parts" picture of a system
■ Understand and appreciate the constraints and limitations of a given ISM system in a given application or range of applications
Minimum Requirement for Award of Credits
Students must submit at least 75% by weight of the components (including examinations) of the course's summative assessment.
