The subject involves undertaking a substantial, semester long project requiring an independent investigation 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 semester two.
The emphasis of the project can be associated with either -
On completion of this subject students should be able to apply the knowledge gained in other subjects to successfully investigate a substantially complex engineering design or research problem and have gained experience in collaborative project work, sourcing and collating information that may be associated with disciplines beyond the scope of prior coursework, in developing hypotheses from which engineering decisions will be made, and in reporting contributions arising from project and professional practice activities.
