Reassessment

In accordance with the University's Code of Assessment reassessments are normally set for all courses which do not contribute to the honours classifications. For non honours courses, students are offered reassessment in all or any of the components of assessment if the satisfactory (threshold) grade for the overall course is not achieved at the first attempt. This is normally grade D3 for undergraduate students, and grade C3 for postgraduate students. Exceptionally it may not be possible to offer reassessment of some coursework items, in which case the mark achieved at the first attempt will be counted towards the final course grade. Any such exceptions are listed below in this box.

Main Assessment In: August

Are reassessment opportunities available for all summative assessments? No

Reassessments are normally available for all courses, except those which contribute to the Honours classification. For non Honours courses, students are offered reassessment in all or any of the components of assessment if the satisfactory (threshold) grade for the overall course is not achieved at the first attempt. This is normally grade D3 for undergraduate students and grade C3 for postgraduate students. Exceptionally it may not be possible to offer reassessment of some coursework items, in which case the mark achieved at the first attempt will be counted towards the final course grade. Any such exceptions for this course are described below. 

Course Aims

The aims are to illustrate practise and to develop an appropriate level of practical knowledge and skill relating to the integrated activities of industrial product design and manufacture.

Intended Learning Outcomes of Course

By the end of this course students will be able to:

1. use the methods of industrial design practice and to develop and present design ideas in a professional manner

2. employ modern design methods to evaluate innovative solutions to engineering design and manufacture problems and opportunities

3. employ CAD and visualisation tools in support of industrial product design and high-volume manufacture

Specifically students will be able to use:

1. methods to evaluate the environmental impact of their design ideas

2. techniques supporting design for plastic injection moulding

3. methods supporting design for assembly and disassembly

4. software allowing simulation of plastic flow (Moldflow) in products

5. methods supporting plastic injection mould tool design
