Upon completion, students will have developed the ability to apply the knowledge gained in other subjects to successfully investigate a substantial engineering design or research problem. Experience will be gained in collaborative project work, sourcing and collating information that may be associated with disciplines beyond the scope of prior coursework, developing hypotheses from which engineering decisions will be made, and the reporting contributions arising from project and professional practice activities.
Unit 1: Major Project:
This unit involves undertaking a major project, requiring an independent investigation and the preparation of reports on an approved topic in advanced engineering design or research. Students will present their findings in a conference podium presentation format, held at the end of the project cycle in the latter half of semester two. The emphasis of the project can be associated with either:
It is expected that the major project will incorporate findings associated with both well-defined professional practice and research principles.
Unit 2: Professional Practice:
Upon completion of this unit, students will have developed an appreciation of the role of technology in society, the responsibilities of engineers with respect to their fellow workers, society and the environment. Topics covered include:
