Research project

Course Director(s): Anna Fraczkiewicz, Vincent Augusto

Description

Links between the other projects / multi-disciplinary projects / internships

The Research project could possibly be inscribed as a continuation of the Industrial project, should the research topic be appropriate. In this manner it would be possible for the student to go further into detail in his industrial project work by exploring new avenues for example, or by testing an innovative approach.

The Research project could also be associated with certain multi-disciplinary projects such as research in the healthcare engineering field into the optimisation of patient pathways.

Positioning within the overall programme

The Research project is connected to Majors and possibly multi-disciplinary projects and inter-disciplinary specialisations. Inter-major projects are welcome.

Finally, the Research project is situated at the end of the programme and should logically correspond to the student’s professional approach, allowing him to accede to the internship or profession which interests him, even if he is not planning a career directly in research

Programme and content

Type of teaching activity

Content, sequencing and organisation

Project based learning

 

Content :

  • Bibliographical review (analysis of the state of the art)
  • Methods presentation (experimental, numerical, modelling)
  • Presentation of results and their critical analysis
  • Conclusions; discussion, work perspectives
  • Document drafting language: English

Reports to be submitted :

  • Intermediary : bibliographical report (1-2 pages) at a half-way stage
  • Final: scientific poster (AO format) and a project article (4 – 5 pages).

Methods :

  • Individual project, work in pairs could be possible, exceptionally (justified by the volume of the project)
  • Projects connected to majors (and preferably calling on Interdisciplinary specialisations). Inter-major projects are welcome.

Submitted reports for assessment:

  • Written report: mini scientific article in English (4-5 pages); to be submitted 3 to 4 days before the end of the project.
  • Presentation of results: poster, during the “poster” day, and before a multi-disciplinary jury.
