For the purposes of considering request for Reasonable Adjustments under the Disability Standards for Education (Cwth 2005), and Students Experiencing Academic Disadvantage Policy, academic requirements for this subject are articulated in the Subject Description, Subject Objectives, Generic Skills and Assessment Requirements of this entry.
Students will undertake as individuals or as a member of a team a designated investigative project which could involve a critical literature review, experimental research and/or development, theoretical modelling, process simulation and/or the solution of an industrial problem. Rigorous planning and scheduling of the project, time management, written and verbal technical communication, interpretation of results and team work will be required. Lectures will be presented on laboratory safety, and the use of statistical methods for experimental data analysis.
The exact content covered in the subject will depend to some extent on the nature of the research project. Topics covered will most probably include literature searches, laboratory safety, risk assessment, data modelling, data analysis, error analysis and report writing.
INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (ILO)
On completion of this subject the student is expected to:
Students participating in the Endeavour program submit their poster and complete their oral presentation towards the end of semester and their written report is submitted during the exam period. Students not participating in the Endeavour program submit their written report towards the end of semester and complete their oral presentation during the exam period.

LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
Students will receive one-on-one instruction on how to complete an open-ended research project on some topic in chemical engineering. They will undertake a project either individually or as part of a team of two or three students. Students will take responsibility for their time management setting priorities and establishing a program that will allow them to complete their project within the time allowed.
INDICATIVE KEY LEARNING RESOURCES
Students will be guided throughout their project by one or two researchers associated with the research activity that they have been assigned to. These researchers will be their guides and mentors on the project. Students will also be provided with access to key relevant research papers. They will be expected to identify further material which they will be able to access through the University Library system. Students will also have access to appropriate software packages.
CAREERS / INDUSTRY LINKS
Many of the projects that will usually be available to the students will relate to some problem or activity found in the process industries.
