Incompatible with: SEJ443
Contact hours:

Campus: Students are expected to maintain regular contact with their academic supervisor either face-to-face or online. Other learning experiences are via CloudDeakin. Students will attend the practical activities for this unit on a single scheduled day during the trimester intensive week.

Cloud (online): Students are expected to maintain regular contact with their academic supervisor either face-to-face or online. Other learning experiences are via CloudDeakin. Students will attend the practical activities for this unit on a single scheduled day during the trimester intensive week.

Note:

Students are expected to undertake SEJ441 and SEJ446 in consecutive trimesters.  Students will be required to seek approval from the unit chair if they are unable to complete SEJ441 and SEJ446 consecutively.  

Content

This unit enables students to develop a detailed proposal for an engineering research project. Students will work with an academic supervisor to formulate a proposal that clearly defines the objectives, scope and justification for the project and incorporates consideration of any key stakeholder requirements, as well as safety, risk and ethical factors. The proposal will allow students an opportunity to obtain advanced theoretical and technical knowledge in their project area during the development of the methodology that will be used to conduct the project in the subsequent unit (SEJ442 or SEJ446). Moreover, this unit uses the concept of research methodologies as a vehicle for student self-directed learning and prepares them for tackling an extended engineering project from conception through to realisation.

Assessment

Initial proposal 20%, final project proposal 60%, presentation 20%.  To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit students must achieve a mark of at least 50% in the final project proposal report and a mark of at least 50% in the presentation.
