A typical week would involve 10 to 12 lectures on perhaps five different courses. Each course issues a series of problem sheets and these are the backbone of the small group supervision sessions (usually only 2 students); you can expect 3 or 4 supervisions per week.
As well as lectures, problem sheets and supervisions, the week also has several sessions for coursework activities. These could be experiments and demonstrations, group design projects, computer programming sessions, drawing exercises, or communication skills workshops. Some of these activities will be single sessions, others may continue over several weeks.
In year 4, the structure of the course changes with about half of your time being spent on one project. Students normally choose from a large range of projects offered by the Department, often on state-of-the-art research topics, but it is also possible to suggest your own project (perhaps in collaboration with an industrial sponsor).
