MPHYGB97: Research Projects for the MSc in Physics and Engineering Medicine 2013/2014
1 & 2
Dr Ilias Tachsidis
MSc project guidance and detailed information about the projects here.
Assessment form for supervisors here.
This course module has a MOODLE webpage see the Moodle page, to which all students have to enrol. The enrolment key/password will be provided in your induction day.
A list of Medical Physics projects being offered can be seen here.
Students should undertake a project which is appropriate to their particular “stream” - Radiation Physics (RP), Biomedical Engineering and Medical Imaging (BEMI) or Medical Image Computing (MIC). Inevitably, most projects will have elements of physics, engineering and computing, so students should consider projects which have the greatest emphasis on their particular stream specialism. Students that will be following the Medical Image Computing stream must select a computing research project for additional advise these students should contact the MIC coordinator Dr Dean Barratt.
From the beginning of September a list of projects is made available on the Medical Physics project website. Students can choose a project anytime, consulting with supervisors by email, by phone, or in person.
Having chosen your project, please update the Moodle and inform the MSc Project Organiser by email.
The normal order of events is given below for full time and 2nd year part time students:
• Selection of project - by the 22nd of November 2013
• Submission of project outline - 6th December 2013
• Submission of progress report - 7th of March 2014
• Poster presentation - 25th of June 2014
• Project talk - 24th and 25th of July 2014
• Final submission of Project Report - 8th of August 2014
Written work should be emailed electronically to the Medical Physics teaching administrator (Mohini Nair, second floor of the Malet Place Engineering Building), who will date stamp it and pass it on to your supervisor. Adherence to the above timetable is essential.
The project will be monitored and assessed continuously via the following components:
• Project outline (5%). [marked independently by 1st and 2nd supervisors]
• Progress report (10%). [marked independently by 1st and 2nd supervisors]
• Poster (10%). [marked by examination panel]
• Project talk (15%). [marked by examination panel]
• Final report (60%). [marked independently by 1st and 2nd supervisors]
The figures in brackets represent the percentage of the final mark allocated to each component.
