Optional modules are usually available at levels 5 and 6, although optional modules are not offered on every course. Where optional modules are available, you will be asked to make your choice during the previous academic year. If we have insufficient numbers of students interested in an optional module, or there are staffing changes which affect the teaching, it may not be offered. If an optional module will not run, we will advise you after the module selection period when numbers are confirmed, or at the earliest time that the programme team make the decision not to run the module, and help you choose an alternative module.
The Foundation year aims to engage you in all aspects of your learning.
You will gain knowledge, understanding and skills through interactive online lectures, and workshops, online activities and tests, guided research, individual and group projects and virtual laboratories and face to face laboratories, COVID-19 permitting. You will receive formative verbal feedback in live teaching practical sessions and summative feedback is provided electronically and/or verbally.

Dr Stocker's research interests lie within the simulation and verification of human-agent-robot-teamwork, where he has worked at NASA to simulate pilots (the humans), the auto-pilot (the agent), and the aeroplane (the robot) working as a team to fly safely. They would model many situations the plane can be in and `verify’ certain conditions either do or don’t happen, e.g. the plane always lands safely or the pilot’s workload never exceeds a threshold limit.
