Student reviews

Good module and I believe good prep for future project modules.

Materials were quite good and thorough, with minimal items in the errata.

Tutors were friendly and there was an abundance of tutorials with easy access to all.

Module satisfaction survey

The figures below are taken from a survey of students who sat the exam/completed the end-of-module assessment for the October 2016 presentation of T313. The survey was carried out in 2017.

134 students (a response rate of 23.6%) responded to the survey covering what they thought of 10 aspects of the module.

Please note that if the percentage of students who responded to this module survey is below 30% and/or the number of responses is below 23 it means that only a small proportion of students provided feedback and their views as shown here may not be fully representative of all students who studied the module.

Faculty comment: "The responses to the survey indicate a high level of satisfaction with the course and the topic. Renewables is a rapidly changing field. The physics remains the same, but the scale and pace of adoption of new renewables - wind and solar in particular is staggering. For this reason, we have fast-tracked the update of a new edition of the core text for the module. This will be published in late 2017. The study guides for the course will be updated as soon as possible after this during the course of the module starting in October 2017. The module will therefore have a new updated core text and new updated study guides ready for the October 2018 start. "
