Mike Knowles, Derek Dixon

Abstract


In this paper an approach to encouraging final year engineering students to engage in reflection regarding the style, formatting, structure and content of their final year project reports. The range and variation of projects within this module, which contains students studying in four engineering subject areas, is substantial and means the correct approach to the write up is unique and specific to each student. Thus a level of reflection in determining the correct approach to report writing is necessary here in addition to being a key employability skill.
