2 14. Educational aims/objectives of the programme: The Aims of all MSc programmes provided by the Department are: To provide students with a solid technical basis in the key areas of the engineering profession through delivery of a coherent, coordinated and balanced degree programme, integrating core engineering science with practical application. To enable students to acquire a mature appreciation of the context in which engineering projects are developed within the industry. To develop in our students excellence in oral, written and graphical communication. To provide students with sufficient material to explore the subject, to carry out selforganised study, and to think about the issues and challenges of the material, in preparation for, or advancement in, professional practice. The Environmental Engineering MSc/DIC course at Imperial College provides advanced training for both engineers and scientists concerned with protecting the environment and human health through the provision of services such as water supply, wastewater treatment and municipal solid waste and hazardous waste management. The programme also addresses resource recovery from waste materials. Environmental Engineering is a multidisciplinary activity and therefore a fundamental objective of the course is to provide the necessary training in such subjects as: environmental chemistry and microbiology mathematical and statistical methods for environmental assessment hydraulic analysis environmental epidemiology The multidisciplinary nature of the subject is reflected in the staff involved in the course, whose backgrounds include chemistry, biology, statistics, geology, materials and medicine, as well as civil engineering. The Business Management option replaces 25% of the environmental engineering modules. This option provides a basis for graduates to engage more quickly and effectively with the economics and management aspects of a career in this area. The Sustainable Development option replaces 25% of the environmental engineering modules. This option allows students to appreciate environmental engineering within the broader context of sustainability, and to apply methods of sustainability analysis to water resources issues. The programme aims to: Produce graduates equipped to pursue careers in Environmental Engineering, in industry, the public sector and non-governmental organisations; Provide the basis for the recognition and understanding of the major features of environmental engineering; Develop an understanding of how this knowledge may be applied in practice in an economic and environmentally sustainable manner; Foster the acquisition and implementation of broad research and analytical skills related to environmental engineering; Attract highly motivated students irrespective of race, gender, background and physical disability, from the UK and overseas; 2

3 Develop new areas of teaching in response to the advance of scholarship and the needs of the community including vocational training; Provide an introduction to the subject for students from other disciplines. Distinctive features of this programme include its broad coverage of problems and issues concerned with the supply of clean water, sustainable waste management and pollution control; clear focus on providing the underlying science and technology to develop and understand engineering solutions to these problems; and opportunities to carry out research in key areas of environmental engineering as part of national and international research projects. 15. Programme Learning Outcomes 1. Knowledge and Understanding A. Knowledge and understanding of: 1. a selection of the major topics in the subject, their recognition and underlying fundamental principles; 2. research investigation techniques which might include information retrieval, experimental design and statistics, modelling and safety; 3. the essential facts, concepts, principles and theories relevant to the student s chosen area of research; 4. management and communication skills, including problem definition, project design, decision processes, teamwork, written and oral reports, scientific publications. Teaching/learning methods and strategies Acquisition of A1 to A4 is through a series of modules delivered by lectures, seminars, computer-based work, coursework. A4 is also supported by the Project Supervisor, by attendance at a number of skills workshops offered by GSEPS, and an induction programme run by our Library services team. Students are encouraged to undertake independent reading both to supplement and consolidate what is being taught/learnt and to broaden their individual knowledge and understanding of the subject. Assessment of the knowledge base is through a combination of unseen written examinations (A1-3); assessed group and individual coursework submissions (A1-4) as well as a research dissertation, particularly focussing on (A2-4). Business Management: A1-A4 are incorporated and evaluated through individual online (VLE) coursework submissions, group and individual reports, group projects and presentations in Project Management, seen* and unseen written examination papers. The sub-module in Project Management is evaluated by group work and one question on the examination paper designed to evaluate the learning experience of the Project Management module. This is an essay type question that will be informed to the student beforehand. Sustainable Development: A1-A4 are incorporated and evaluated through autumn term individual coursework submissions (unweighted, but informing the major Design Guide (20% of total)), spring term individual courseworks based on lecture material incorporating the core civil engineering disciplines and their relationships to sustainable development (20%) and a 3-hour unseen written examination paper (60%). 3

The academic requirements associated with the part time modes are the same as those for full time study, but attendance at College is spread over two or three years on a day release or term release basis. In day release mode, students attend College between one and two days per week over two or three years. In term release mode, the student attends College full time for a term in each of three years. Throughout their period of part time study, students are supported through contact with their Personal Tutors and other members of staff. Term 1 (autumn) All MSc students attend an induction programme, which includes an introduction to the Department, Safety and use of support facilities, including introductions to the library and information retrieval, referencing and avoiding plagiarism. The students are also required to attend 8

9 an Introduction to the Environmental Engineering MSc course and an Environmental Engineering MSc Induction Day. They attend an extensive series of lectures and complete a number of coursework assignments during the first term, including those following the Business Management and Sustainable Development are also required to attend. In addition, they meet with the Course director, who acts as Personal Tutor to the student during the taught terms, this role is then assumed by the Dissertation supervisor for the remainder of the MSc course. Those students with perceived English language deficiencies are encouraged to at this stage to seek remedial support from the English Language Support Unit. A series of Maths Workshops are made available to students to assist with the mathematical components of the programmes. Students are required to attend course modules lectures and submit coursework assignments. Term 2 (spring) In the first week: Business Management students undertake the first of two (actual) written examinations covering the autumn term material. Sustainable Development students submit their Design Guides (this is a research based project carrying 20% of the overall assessment in the module). All students undertake a progress test, the results of which count towards the coursework mark and will provide an opportunity for candidates and examiners to identify areas where further work may be necessary. Students are required to attend course module lectures, complete coursework assignments and give technical presentations based on their findings during the second term. They are also expected to consider the major dissertation projects available for the summer and discuss their options with relevant members of the academic staff. The final week of the term is devoted to a 3-day study tour, which takes the students to sites and facilities of particular relevance to various aspects of Environmental Engineering. Term 3 (summer) The remainder of the examinations take place during the first two weeks of term, including the second Business Management exam and that for Sustainable Development. Following this students dedicate themselves full-time to their research project. By this stage it is expected that the students have a full understanding of the nature and needs associated with the project, in support of this, the Library run further training sessions on referencing and reporting. The projects are primarily conducted at Imperial College, but can involve industrial collaboration or time spent overseas. The assessment is based primarily upon a written dissertation. The project is assessed in the first instance by the supervisor and by a second member of academic staff from the Department s Environmental and Water Resources Engineering Section. The External Examiner and the Board of Examiners provide further scrutiny. 18. Support for students and their learning: One week induction programme for orientation, introduction to library and information technology, and the Department, Introduction to the MSc course and MSc course Induction Day.

Criteria for admission: The minimum qualification for admission is normally an Upper Second Class Honours degree in Civil Engineering from a UK academic institution or an equivalent overseas qualification, or an Upper Second Class Honours degree in another engineering discipline or a science-based subject from a UK academic institution or equivalent overseas qualification with relevant experience. Where an applicant has a lesser degree qualification but has substantial work experience and outstanding references, the Admissions Panel may, exceptionally, make a special case for admission; few such applications are made, and are subject to the approval of the Graduate School. Candidates are normally expected to have at least A-Level Mathematics, or equivalent, or to have professional experience that demonstrates a comparable level of understanding of relevant mathematical concepts. 20. Processes used to select students: Selection is primarily based on the information supplied in the application and supporting documentation, with particular weight being given to the reference letters, work experience and academic history. All applications are reviewed by an Admissions Panel. Historical knowledge 10

11 and familiarity with qualifications presented inform judgements. A number of candidates are interviewed in each cycle. 21. Methods for evaluating and improving the quality and standards of teaching and learning. a) Methods for review and evaluation of teaching, learning, assessment, the curriculum and outcome standards: The external examiner system and Boards of Examiners are central to the process by which the College monitors the reliability and validity of its assessment procedures and academic standards. Boards of Examiners comment on the assessment procedures within the College and may suggest improvements for action by relevant departmental teaching Committees. The Faculty Studies Committees and the Graduate Schools Postgraduate Quality Committees review and consider the reports of external examiners and accrediting bodies and conduct periodic (normally quinquennial) and internal reviews of teaching provision. Regular reviews ensure that there is opportunity to highlight examples of good practice and ensure that recommendations for improvement can be made. At programme level, the Head of Department has overall responsibility for academic standards and the quality of the educational experience delivered within the department. The Department s MSc courses are accredited by the relevant professional engineering and science Institutions via the quinquennial Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) review. Accreditation provides the College with additional assurance that its programmes are of an appropriate standard and relevant to the requirement of industry and the professions. This accreditation recognised our MSc programmes as Periods of Further Learning towards Chartership. Additionally, at local level: Module reviews, based on feedback from students questionnaires. Annual course review prepared by the Course Director and considered by the Course Committee and the MSc Teaching Committee. Biennial review of the course by an Imperial College academic staff member from outside the department with a report and grading to the Graduate School of Engineering & Physical Sciences Management (or Executive) Committee. MSc Staff Student Committee, held each term, with report to MSc Teaching Committee. Biennial staff appraisal. Peer observation of teaching. External Examiner s reports and Industrial Advisory reports. Periodic review of departmental teaching by an external panel with members drawn from another university, a research institute and industry b) Committees with responsibility for monitoring and evaluating quality and standards: The Senate oversees the quality assurance and regulation of degrees offered by the College. It is charged with promoting the academic work of the College, both in teaching and research, and with 11

12 regulating and supervising the education and discipline of the students of the College. It has responsibility for approval of changes to the Academic Regulations, major changes to degree programmes and approval of new programmes. The Quality Assurance Advisory Committee (QAAC) is the main forum for discussion of QA policy and the regulation of degree programmes at College level. QAAC develops and advises the Senate on the implementation of codes of practice and procedures relating to quality assurance and audit of quality and arrangements necessary to ensure compliance with national and international standards. QAAC also considers amendments to the Academic Regulations before making recommendations for change to the Senate. It also maintains an overview of the statistics on completion rates, withdrawals, examination irregularities (including cases of plagiarism), student appeals and disciplinaries. The Faculty Studies Committees and Graduate School Postgraduate Quality Committees are the major vehicle for the quality assurance of undergraduate / postgraduate courses respectively. Their remit includes: setting the standards and framework, and overseeing the processes of quality assurance, for the areas within their remit; monitoring the provision and quality of e-learning; undertaking reviews of new and existing courses; noting minor changes in existing programme curricula approved by Departments; approving new modules, changes in module titles, major changes in examination structure and programme specifications for existing programmes; and reviewing proposals for new programmes, and the discontinuation of existing programmes, and making recommendations to Senate as appropriate. The Faculty Teaching Committees maintain and develop teaching strategies and promote interdepartmental and inter-faculty teaching activities to enhance the efficiency of teaching within Faculties. They also identify and disseminate examples of good practice in teaching. Departmental Teaching Committees have responsibility for the approval of minor changes to course curricula and examination structures and approve arrangements for course work. They also consider the details of entrance requirements and determine departmental postgraduate student numbers. The Faculty Studies Committees and the Graduate School Postgraduate Quality Committees receive regular reports from the Departmental Teaching Committees. Additionally, at local level: Postgraduate Staff Student Liaison Committee. Meetings between Course Director and MSc student representatives. Board of Examiners meets in September to consider awards. Departmental MSc Teaching Committee and MSc Management Group Employer needs and opinions feed into the programme through frequent guest lecturers from industry, industry-based projects, and collaboration between academic staff and industry in research and consultancy. In addition, formal feedback is provided annually via the Industrial Advisory Panel. c) Mechanisms for providing prompt feedback to students on their performance in course work and examinations and processes for monitoring that these named processes are effective: a. GTAS, specifically trained in the marking of coursework and minor project elements are used to ensure return of marked work within the 4-week specification. b. Marked and annotated Coursework is returned to students. c. Some academic staff provide verbal feedback in class, others distribute written overviews. 12

13 d. Provisional feedback on examination performance is provided to the students following the meeting of the Board of Examiners in September. d) Mechanisms for gaining student feedback on the quality of teaching and their learning experience and how students are provided with feedback as to actions taken as a result of their comments: Student Feedback Questionnaires reports are sent to individual staff. The Course Director is responsible for action on points raised with the relevant member of staff where necessary. SSLC minutes (including actionable items) are posted to the Department Intranet Meetings with Personal Tutors. End of Year Meetings with the External Examiner, at which students are interviewed. e) Mechanisms for monitoring the effectiveness of the personal tutoring system: Staff-student Liaison committee meetings Student Feedback questionnaires f) Mechanisms for recognising and rewarding excellence in teaching and in pastoral care: Staff are encouraged to reflect on their teaching, in order to introduce enhancements and develop innovative teaching methods. Each year College awards are presented to academic staff for outstanding contributions to teaching, pastoral care or research supervision. A special award for Teaching Innovation, available each year, is presented to a member of staff who has demonstrated an original and innovative approach to teaching. Nominations for these awards come from across the College and students are invited both to nominate staff and to sit on the deciding panels. g) Staff development priorities for this programme include: All new lecturing staff are required to undertake CASLAT and Workshops appropriate to teaching. Each probationary lecturer is allocated a mentor, one of the requirements of the mentor is to audit teaching. Further staff development occurs through: Active research programmes in Environmental and Water Resources Engineering; The staff appraisal scheme and institutional staff development courses; The College Teaching Development Grant Scheme that funds the development of new teaching and appraisal methods. 22. Regulation of Assessment a) Assessment Rules and Degree Classification: The MSc degree assessment comprises two elements, Examinations and Coursework, representing 40% and 60% respectively of the overall mark. Coursework is further divided into Dissertation (40%) and coursework assignments (20%). The MSc degree is awarded to any student who achieves all of the following: 13

14 (1) An aggregate mark of not less than 50% in all examinations*, AND (2) An aggregate mark of not less than 50% for all coursework, AND (3) A mark of not less than 50% in the major dissertation. * In line with the policy on assessment of advanced postgraduate courses provided by Imperial College, no compensation will be given in assessments in which a candidate has achieved less than 40% in one of the examination papers. Provided that all thee of the above criteria are satisfied, the MSc degree will be awarded in one of the following classifications: (a) Pass (see above), or (b) Pass with Merit would normally be awarded if the aggregate mark of all examinations is not less than 60% AND the aggregate mark for coursework is not less than 60% AND the mark for the dissertation is not less than 60% AND the MSc is completed in 12 months, or (c) Pass with Distinction would normally be awarded if the aggregate mark for the examinations is not less than 70% AND the aggregate mark for coursework is not less than 70% AND the mark for the dissertation is not less than 70% AND the MSc is completed in 12 months. Summary of grades, marks and their interpretation for MSc degree classification GRADE MARKS INTERPRETATION A 70% - 100% Marks represent a distinction (truly exceptional or excellent) performance B/C 60% % Marks represent a pass with merit D 50% % Marks represent an acceptable performance at MSc level E 0% % Marks represent a fail performance b) Marking Schemes for postgraduate taught programmes: See a) Assessment Rules and Degree Classification c) Processes for dealing with mitigating circumstances: For postgraduate taught programmes: A candidate for a Master s degree who is prevented owing to illness or the death of a near relative or other cause judged sufficient by the Graduate Schools from completing at the normal time the examination or Part of the examination for which he/she has entered may, at the discretion of the Examiners, (a) Enter the examination in those elements in which he/she was not able to be examined on the next occasion when the examination is held in order to complete the examination, or (b) be set a special examination in those elements of the examination missed as soon as possible and/or be permitted to submit any work prescribed (e.g. report) at a date specified by the Board of Examiners concerned. The special examination shall be in the same format as specified in the course regulations for the element(s) missed. 14

15 Applications, which must be accompanied by a medical certificate or other statement of the grounds on which the application is made, shall be submitted to the Academic Registrar who will submit them to the Board of Examiners. d) Processes for determining degree classification for borderline candidates: For postgraduate taught programmes: Candidates should only be considered for promotion to Pass, Merit or Distinction if their aggregate mark is within 2.5% of the relevant borderline. Nevertheless, candidates whom the Board deems to have exceptional circumstances may be considered for promotion even if their aggregate mark is more than 2.5% from the borderline. In such cases the necessary extra marks should be credited to bring the candidate s aggregate mark into the higher range. e) Role of external examiners: External examiners (from other universities and research institutes) are nominated by the MSc Academic Board and approved by the Graduate School of Engineering & Physical Sciences Management (or Executive) Committee. A External Examiner is appointed for each course; and normally serve for 3 years. The role of External Examiner is that of moderator. The primary duty of external examiners is to ensure that the degrees awarded by the College are consistent with that of the national university system. External examiners are also responsible for approval of draft question papers, assessment of examination scripts, projects and coursework and in some cases will attend viva voce examinations. Although external examiners do not have power of veto their views carry considerable weight and will be treated accordingly. External examiners are required to attend each meeting of the Board of Examiners where recommendations on the results of individual examinations are considered. External examiners are required to write an annual report to the Rector of Imperial College which may include observations on teaching, course structure and course content as well as the examination process as a whole. The College provides feedback to external examiners in response to recommendations made within their reports. 23.
