This subject provides students with the opportunity to integrate technical knowledge and generic skills gained in earlier years. This is to be achieved within the context of an engineering project conducted in a small group (typically two or three students) under the supervision of a member of academic staff and where appropriate an industry partner. The project component of this subject is supplemented by a lecture course dealing with project management tools and practices, organisational structures, engineering standards and the social and environmental responsibility of professional engineers.
Topics include: Technical report writing, engineering design, planning and conducting experiments and test, data acquisition and analysis, public speaking, project presentation skills.
This subject has been integrated with the Skills Towards Employment Program (STEP) and contains activities that can assist in the completion of the Engineering Practice Hurdle (EPH).
INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (ILO)
Having completed this subject it is expected that the student be able to:
For project carried out in the first semester(25 points in Semester 1) the final project mark will be determined using the following assessment components:
For project carried out in a year( 25 points yearlong) the final project mark will be determined using the following assessment components:
Individual continuous assessment of the lecture component of the subject, comprising submitted work not exceeding 25 pages over semester 1, worth 25%; Individual oral assessment of duration at most 15 minutes per student towards the end of semester 2, worth 10%; A group oral presentation of duration at most 30 minutes, and a public display of project outcomes towards the end of semester 2, worth 10%; A group preliminary report not exceeding the sum of 10 pages per student plus 20 pages (excluding appendices), due two weeks before the oral presentation, worth 5%. A final group report not exceeding the sum of 15 pages per student plus 30 pages , (excluding appendices) due in the end-of-semester 2 at the beginning of examination period, worth 50%. In order to pass the subject the students must receive a mark of at least 37.5 out of 75 for the components related to the project (i.e. the individual oral assessment, the group oral presentation and public display, the preliminary report and the final report).
Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs) 1, 2, and 3 are assessed in all assessment components. ILO 4 and 5 are primarily assessed in the continuous assessment of the project management component of the course.

LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
The subject is delivered through lectures and meetings with academic and/or industry project supervisors.
INDICATIVE KEY LEARNING RESOURCES
Students are provided with laboratory manuals and data sheets as appropriate to experiments, and access to textbooks and journal papers through the library system.
CAREERS / INDUSTRY LINKS
Exposure to electrical engineering in industry, and research laboratories through collaborative projects with external co-supervision arrangements. Students are encouraged to take industry based projects. All students taking the full year subject are required to present their work to an audience of engineering professionals at public Exhibition near the end of semester 2.
