1.     Introduction and welcome

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Computer Aided
Product Design and Computer Aided Engineering Design awards, run from within the
Architecture and Product Design Department.

Your specific award is one of two design awards run by the School of Engineering
and the Built Environment (SEBE). These awards have a common modular structure
and the two awards are shown below:

 BSc (Hons) Computer Aided Product Design
 BSc (Hons) Computer Aided Engineering Design

This Pathway document aims to provide a helpful guide to the course and its structure.

This is a very important time in your life. The outcome of your studies could affect the
whole of your future career. You should, therefore, devote most of your time to study
but in order to derive maximum benefit from University life you should also leave
some spare time for recreational and social activities.

We wish you every success in your studies and hope that your time at the University
will be enjoyable and rewarding.

1.1    ATTENDANCE POLICY


The University wants all students to achieve their best performance. It offers students
carefully prepared learning experiences that will enable them to meet the learning
outcomes of their modules. The School believes students will perform best if they
regularly attend and participate in these learning experiences; students should not be
concentrating solely on the completion of assessment tasks. It therefore expects all
students to participate fully in the learning experience. Where students are unable to
attend for good reason (e.g. illness, hospital appointment, unavoidable work
commitments, religious festivals etc) they are required to discuss this with their tutor
who will make reasonable efforts to provide alternative arrangements. Where students
do not attend they cannot expect their tutor to devote additional time and resources to
their learning. If students are unhappy with the learning experiences provided they
should make their views known through the normal channels.
The School, particularly on level 1 modules, keeps records of attendance at taught
sessions and students who do not attend regularly may be contacted to establish if
there are any issues that need resolving. Students are encouraged to discuss any non-
attendance with either their module leader or personal tutor, both of whom may be
reached either directly (e.g. in person, email and telephone) or via a message left with
the School office.

5.      Staff responsible for Pathway advice

If you wish to discuss any topics regarding Pathways please contact Graham Hudson or
Kevin Garner.
Should any difficulties arise when studying the modules, in the first instance you are
advised to make contact with the module lecturer/leader.
All lecturers contributing to the core modules operate an ‘open door’ policy where
possible, and you are encouraged to make good use of this.

6.      Careers in Computer Aided Product Design and Computer
        Aided Engineering Design


The Computer Aided Product Design and Computer Aided Engineering Design Awards
both aim to ensure that the successful graduate is able to demonstrate the ability to
design products in the professional world of design. This can only be achieved by
building on knowledge of sound education in the design process and producing
graduates who are confident and competent in the application of new technologies in
the design field. The acquisition of these skills will then enable the graduate to become
a professional product or engineering designer.

As part of the university’s support policy the Gateway facility on City Campus provides
a range of services to assist graduates in identifying career opportunities.
