Undergraduate projects are now generally regarded as forming an essential part of degree education for engineers. The authors have made a wide study of the objectives, strategies of conduct and particularly methods of assessing final-year undergraduate projects mainly, but not entirely, in electronic and electrical engineering. Information has been obtained from most British university and polytechnic electronic and electrical engineering departments, and a wide variety of departments in other disciplines. Views have also been sought from the Open University, the Council for National Academic Awards and the Institution of Electrical Engineers. The findings are reported here and a critical evaluation of project work and assessment methods is made.
