You are expected to have read and understood the University guidelines on academic conduct. In accordance with this policy, you may discuss with other students the general principles required to understand individual assessments, but the work you submit must be the result of your own effort.
Assessment for the unit includes two assignments, worth 20% and 30% respectively. These cover the topics of: modelling and simulation of a process; and measurement and optimisation of a process.
Specifications for these assignments will be made available on this page.
Practical exercises will be included in workshops. These practical exercises do not contribute directly to your final mark, but it is strongly recommended you attend workshops and complete them.
Exam questions will tend to be closely based on workshop material, and a good knowledge of the workshop material will be needed for the assignments.
There will be a 2-hour exam in the November examination period.
The exam will have 6 questions, each worth 10 marks for a total of 60 marks. So aim to tackle each question in 20 minutes.
All answers must be thoroughly justified with evidence. The bulk of marks are awarded for demonstrating that you can apply the principles learnt to a situation, identify relevant features, justify your approach, and describe it logically and clearly.
Calculators are not required for the CITS5502 exam.
And good luck!
