Additional Information

The student contact workload for academic staff assocaited with Online delivery may need be reviewed as the experience of the module author with six years of online delivery suggests higher student contact time (though less lecture delivery time) as evidenced in other engineering modules to Mechatronics/Energy online groups. The online weekly hours for theory of 3 hrs/week may not be adequate and possibly needs to be supplemented with 1 hour of tutorial contact time.

Facilities Capacity Management and Planning added to this module as further improvement of course.
