SUPPORT FOR STUDENTS AND THEIR LEARNING Students and their learning are supported in a number of ways: An Induction Meeting is held to give students resources that are noted below, and give an overview of the vital information they need for the first weeks of study. For first year students, further information is delivered throughout the year as necessary within the module delivery, and particularly within the Professional Studies module. Other students are encouraged to review other materials made available online or to contact their studies advisor for more information. Within the context of professional studies, delivered at several levels students are advised of the importance of eventual CPD, and PDP as a preparation for that, and as an aid for their learning. A Programme Handbook provides all the necessary information about the programme. It welcomes students to the School of Engineering and to the programme. It provides information on modules to be studied, programme calendar, course director, teaching staff, health and safety issues, student support services and a guide to life as a student. It also contains the programme specification and the current programme regulations. Module Handbooks describe the content of each module delivered in a particular year. These provide students with the module content, teaching and assessment schedules and a list of the recommended texts. A Study Advisor is allocated to each student. The advisor is a member of staff who provides assistance to the student in their personal and career development.

16 Section B1: Specifications A centralised Counselling Service is available to students who are experiencing problems with aspects of their lives other than the strictly academic. However, if these problems are affecting their studies or academic progress the course director, study advisor and appropriate members of the programme team co-operate to provide recommended help and advice to the student concerned. A centralised Careers Development Service is available to help students determine their future career and support their applications for employment. Direct advice is provided through a series of lectures during the first semester of the students final year. This provides advice and direction to students and enables them to make meaningful use of the careers service during the remainder of the year. A student/staff consultative committee is established for each year of the programme, which provides a means of addressing general programme concerns. Students also have direct access to the Course Director/ Studies Advisor. Other support is provided in the areas of accommodation, special needs, heath, childcare, library and computer usage. 14. CRITERIA FOR ADMISSION Applicants must satisfy the University s general entry requirements as set out in the prospectus or demonstrate their ability to undertake the course through the accreditation of prior experiential learning (APEL). The initial offer standard may vary from year to year. See prospectus entry. 15. EVALUATING AND IMPROVING THE QUALITY AND STANDARD OF TEACHING AND LEARNING Mechanisms for review and evaluation of teaching, learning, assessment, and the curriculum and outcome standards include: The Course Committee. This committee oversees all changes to the Programme and has overall responsibility for its design and effective delivery. The Staff-Student Consultative Committee. Class representatives are appointed for each year of the programme. They are expected to bring forward any issues raised by the student group they represent. Module Questionnaires. The students complete a questionnaire for each of the modules being studied. The results of the survey help to identify strengths and weaknesses in the delivery of the modules. The University collates the results for each School and individual staff members discuss the results with their Head of School. Module Evaluation. Each member of the teaching staff takes responsibility for evaluating the content and delivery of each module they present. The evaluation is informed by student feedback, and the Programme Committee reviews the evaluations.

17 Section B1: Specifications Peer Supported Review. Each year, each member of teaching staff is expected to undertake some initiative to improve some aspect of their teaching and learning performance, supported by another colleague from within the university. Staff Teaching Performance. This is monitored annually through online student questionnaires. The results of the survey help staff identify their own strengths/weaknesses and to take appropriate action where necessary. Staff Appraisal. This exercise is carried out on a 2-year cycle with attention given to the development needs of the individual staff member. Staff Development. The University has an active Staff Development Unit, which works closely with Educational Development and, in addition provides specific training/development for staff. Specifically, all new staff (opportunity is also provided for existing staff) have to pursue a formal teaching qualification (Postgraduate Certificate) and are encouraged to apply for membership of the Higher Education Academy. Annual Subject Monitoring. Each year, all programmes within the Faculty are reviewed to ensure their effectiveness and identify opportunities for improvement. Industrial Advisory Board. The school maintains an industrial advisory board which it consults on changes to its provision to ensure excellent industrial relevance. 16. REGULATION OF STANDARDS Assessment rules General Requirements General programme regulations are in accordance with the current University of Ulster Charter, Statutes, Ordinances and Regulations and updated annually in the Programme Handbook.

Their key functions are to contribute to the assurance of the standards of the award and the fair treatment of students. They are involved in the moderation and approval of assessments and the moderation of the marking undertaken by internal examiners. 17. INDICATORS OF QUALITY RELATING TO TEACHING AND LEARNING Teaching staff within the faculty are encouraged to become accredited members of the Higher Education Academy. To date 9 members have fulfilled the requirements through completion of the Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education Practice or its predecessor awards. A further 4 staff members are in process of gaining fellowship by completing the PGCHEP award or by direct application. Several staff within the School have wide past and current experience of external examining other similar provision at other institutions. As well as teaching, most staff are actively engaged in research that informs their teaching. In addition, most have substantial industrial experience prior to joining the University. A significant number are full members, or fellows, of appropriate professional bodies (e.g. CEng, MIMechE, MIEE, MIED, CMath etc.).

19 Section B1: Specifications Staff from the School engage in high quality research in areas such as Materials, Nanotechnology, Composites and Metal forming, with the growing strength in materials research now achieving 11th in UK in the latest Research Assessment Exercise (RAE 2008). The school is also, in its collaborative provision with other schools well matched by excellent research in the areas of Sports Science and Design. Aspects of teaching and learning within the School have been demonstrated and published internationally; in particular our pioneering developments in the areas of managing placement are now used by several other universities across the globe. Several members of the team have been awarded Distinguished Fellowships in Teaching and Learning Support. All honours degree students obtain a suitable one year industrial placement for their DPP year either locally or internationally. It is envisaged that, similar to other engineering/technology graduates, employment prospects will be substantially better for graduates from the course when compared to students coming from other subject disciplines...oooooo..
