You will have the opportunity to solve complex problems through the application of practical skills, theoretical and technical understanding.

Becoming a more independent learner, you will take more responsibility for the research, planning, time management and actions to access progression opportunities in Higher Education or related work.

A Final Major Project gives you the opportunity to demonstrate integration of all aspects of the course in a chosen area of interest which shows an approach which is in depth and sophisticated.
