Module Description

This module is a summative review of the theoretical concepts learnt during modules 11-19. The first part of the module will focus on recapping and refreshing the theoretical concepts covered in those modules. The second part of the course will focus on introduction to case studies. Additionally, this part will focus on discussion on progress and challenges related to interpretation of those case studies and ways of working forward.
An application of knowledge related to module 11-19 will be assessed through a Capstone Project.
