Description

This 120 credit point unit will comprise a range of mathematics, engineering and related topics taken at a foreign institution with which Bristol has made a bilateral agreement. The subjects will be arranged on an individual basis, set out in a formal learning agreement and approved by the home Department. The programmes should include the core subjects at an appropriate level, where possible. Students are encouraged to do projects, where available, and to study specialist subjects which are not taught at Bristol.

Intended learning outcomes

Students will acquire broadly similar skills to those corresponding to the third year of the G161 programme offered at Bristol. This will include being able to demonstrate knowledge of suitable technical mathematics and engineering topics, together with their application to mathematical and data modelling. In particular, it is required that they obtain a sufficient background so as to provide pre-requisites for their option choices, and for an appropriate individual project, in year 4.

Assessment Details

Assessments for the year will be based on the work at the chosen University. Assessment methods are in the form of written exams and submission of assessed coursework. All assessments are run by the host institution. The number of credits that need to be undertaken is determined in accordance with the University's regulations at the time. The mark awarded by the chosen University will be adjusted to an equivalent Bristol mark using approved conversion algorithms.

Reading lists will be provided by the host University
