Year Abroad EEE and EIE

If you are on a Year Abroad programme you should attend the language course, or any orientation programme, organized by your host university before the academic year starts.

By the start of October you should email Professor Astolfi (copied to Emma Rainbow) with your choice of modules.  You will need the Department’s approval for your choice of modules.

During your Year Abroad you have to obtain a total of 60 ECTS credits divided as follows.

Exams with a pass mark (25 ECTS).

(This is generally equivalent to 5 modules, however some institutions offer modules worth 7.5 or 10 ECTS).
You could take a non-technical module worth 5 ECTS credit. Marks are expressed into percent, on the basis of our knowledge of the host institution and of their pass/fail policy. Please do not rely on past data or on anecdotal evidence. The Department is the only source of reliable information!
The exams marks carry 40% of your total mark for the year abroad.
 

Dissertation (10 ECTS)

Upload page for the dissertation
Your dissertation is an essay on a subject of interest to engineers, and will have a component relating to the host country. It could for example describe a sector of industry, compare host country and the UK, and discuss  ts impact on society. Or it could describe a piece of research, and its impact on the industry in the host country and the UK. The style to use is that of essays in Science (the journal), American Scientist, Le Monde or Die Zeit.
Your dissertation should be approximately 20 pages long (12 pt, double spacing) including title, references, etc.  The dissertation is marked by Professor Astolfi and carries 20% of the total mark for your year abroad.

Project (25 ECTS)

The project should be similar in scope to a final year project.  The title and broad subject of the project has to be approved by Professor Astolfi, and should be started as soon as possible after starting your year abroad.
The project is marked a member of staff of our department, and second marked by Professor Astolfi. This second marking takes into account information we receive from your project supervisor abroad. This mark constitutes 40% of your total mark for your year abroad.

While you are abroad

Please keep in touch (by email, phone if needed, and whenever you are back in London). If you encounter any serious problem let Professor Astolfi  know as soon as possible. Additionally, you may always contact Mrs E Perea (Senior Tutor), Dr. K. Fobelets (Director of Undergraduate Studies) and Emma Rainbow (UG  Administrator). If needed, we arrange a visit at your host institution to check your progress and discuss any problem.

Finally, please note that, while abroad if you have any doubt or problem it is always best, and wise, to let us know.
