Subject Overview:

This research honours project develops a student's ability to design and undertake a substantial body of work, to find solutions to a particular industry or discipline issue, and to report on this in written and verbal form. The project topic is developed in close collaboration between student, academic and industry advisers. Project definition is completed shortly after commencement of the semester of enrolment in the subject, and requires approval from the subject coordinator based on input from academic and industry advisors, taking into account the student's preparation through previous selection of elective or stream subjects.

Students registered in the subject will attend a series of lectures delivered at each campus on research topics. Logistic assistance for projects is coordinated on a case-by-case basis.

Each student prepares a short oral presentation on their project proposal, which is peer-reviewed, as well as a written proposal (5-8 pages) to be assessed by academic and industry advisers. A more detailed oral presentation is presented on the final results of the project to an audience of MSLE and industry staff.

Objectives: N/A

Project proposal (10%), thesis of maximum 15 000 words (75%), final oral presentation (15%).
