This subject involves undertaking a Biosystems design group projects from concept to reporting and communicating the design proposal through to possible development, and so will provide an integrated capstone experience for the Bioengineering major.
The emphasis of each of the projects is associated with a well-defined project description that may be based on a task required by an academic or externial, industry-based client. The topics covered will include design processes, formulation of the problem, conceptual designs, partitioning of design activities, analysis of system components, integration of design, quality and safety assessment, project management, and engineering professional attitudes.
The open-ended nature of the design task will result in students having exposure to historical, sociological and environmental factors in invention and innovation, professional ethics, regulatory and statutory requirements, legal and ethical responsibilities, and environmental considerations.
Upon completion of this subject students should be able to:
Three written design reports submitted by each individual (maximum of 1,000 words each) spread from week 4 to week 10 (30%).
A poster presentation by each individual due in week 11 (10%).
An oral presentation (up to 30 minutes duration) by each group due in week 12 (10%).
A final report by each group (maximum 3,000 words) due in week 12 (50%).
