26 Changes in teaching

Changes in teaching

Lectures continue, now often accompanied by detailed handouts Less laboratory work More project work Examples classes discontinued Plenty of College supervisions A large proportion of which are given by postdocs and PhD students Teaching almost entirely in-house (other than a few 4th year options) Internet Web resources for learning Weblabs

Industrial involvement in teaching

28 Independence

Independence

Set up as independent of Faculty of Engineering Faculty of Physics & Chemistry Still true for new department Can modify course rapidly as and when we want We train our students: to do Engineering calculations to think like Scientists The emphasis on the fundamental scientific principles behind processes continues: We dont teach our students how to follow recipes We teach our students how to write them
