Ultra Precision Machine & Process Laboratories
Laboratories based learning with academic support throughout sessions. Structure is tutorial together with hands on practical work. Students have to issue a 3,000-word review to include the following: document laboratory results describing the steps taken to achieve final results. Then describe possible sources of error or misinterpretation that may have impacted results.
