and homework assignments with a mentor on call.
The program consists of 12 modules, over a period
of 3 months.
Some modules may involve a practical component
or group activity. For each module there will be an
initial reading assignment along with coursework
or problems to be handed in and in some cases
practical exercises. Participants will have ongoing
support from their lecturer and program
Program reading material will be delivered in
electronic (PDF) format in advance of online
presentations. Presentations and group
discussions will be conducted using a live
interactive software system. Assignments will be
submitted electronically and wherever possible,
practical exercises will be conducted using
simulation software and remote labs.
