Title: Boosting creativity, design and prototyping skills for Engineering Innovation
Authors: Willis, Liz
Keywords: Specialist design
Issue Date: 2011
Publisher: © Higher Education Academy Engineering Subject Centre, Loughborough University
Abstract: This case study has been developed from data gathered through observations of the teaching component; interviews with the tutor and recent graduates; and a student focus group. In this unit, final year MEng mechanical engineering students can opt to conduct a masters-level design project instead of completing a research dissertation. This year, 18 students have chosen the unit from the 120-strong cohort. The students work on their own open-ended design brief for a whole academic year; part-time in the first semester and full-time in the second semester.
