The final year project represents a very significant milestone in the education of a final year engineering student. For the first time, he or she is required to undertake a research-oriented project entirely on their own. While projects in the earlier semesters were primarily group projects of a design and build nature, the final year project is different in that it is an individual research project. It requires the student to manage it to completion by themselves and to develop the requisite research skills to undertake it successfully. This chapter elaborates on the final year project module at Taylor’s University’s School of Engineering with regards to design and implementation of the module and how this influences the learning process of the students.
