Module Overview

Clinical Measurement Final Stage Project

In the final stage of a degree programme students are required to undertake a major project, which contributes to their final grade and degree award. The School has a substantial track record of running projects in the final Stage of all programmes, both based in TUDublin,  and in collaboration with external partners in industry or in a hospital. Students view the project as the culmination of their studies, where they have the opportunity to undertake an independent body of work of which they can claim ownership. The planning, execution and writing of the project encompasses literature survey, plan of work, time management, experimental work, data interpretation, computer skills and ultimately demands a clear and meaningful presentation of scientific information.
