For the purposes of considering request for Reasonable Adjustments under the Disability Standards for Education (Cwth 2005), and Student Support and Engagement Policy, academic requirements for this subject are articulated in the Subject Overview, Learning Outcomes, Assessment and Generic Skills sections of this entry.

CoordinatorAssoc Prof Erik Weyer
On completion of this subject students should have acquired practical design and research skills related to professional practice in electrical and electronic engineering and computing, and have demonstrated the ability to work in a small team under broad project guidelines and to successfully achieve the agreed project goals.
Projects will be undertaken under the supervision of a member of academic staff of the department or while on an exchange program. Projects will require activities related to design, implementation and testing of electrical, electronic or computing systems with associated literature reviews, computing and workbench activities. A project list will be provided by the department. Students are encouraged to submit their own project proposals for consideration by the department. A number of project proposals are also solicited from local industry. Projects will be of greater scope and level of difficulty than those offered in 431-480 Project Work. Project management and reporting will comprise a significant part of all projects. Students will be expected to keep a laboratory notebook recording their contributions to the project.
