Our Student Projects

Have you ever wondered if there could be a link between Psychology and technology? 

Well, two TP Psychology students used the Visual Inspection Model to examine the impact of automation on inspection performance. They conducted two tests, one with an actual airplane and the other with a mock-up circuit board, and found that the use of automation-assisted techniques is detrimental to performance. The study presents a novel research basis for future development.

Is your well-being affected by the high academic pressure you face?
A group of TP Psychology students was interested in how Positive Psychology interventions such as a growth mindset and an increased self-efficacy, might mitigate the impact of academic pressure on one’s well-being. The study found that a fixed mindset led to resilience. The study gives us insight into the importance of interventions in the face of academic pressure.

Why are Special Needs students dealing with mental health issues not making use of mental health support?

Six Psychology students were interested in understanding the factors that affect the low mental health support take-up rate among Special Needs students who are dealing with mental health issues. To understand this observation, they conducted an exploratory study with educational psychologists and social workers. The study equips the Psychology students with knowledge and understanding about the issues faced by students with Special Needs, and it also serves as a resource to stakeholders in organisations which have Special Needs students facing mental health issues.
