Community Science Project is the final unit of the professional practice sequence for the Bachelor of Science. Students will complete all aspects of a project of their choice (pending approval by the Unit Chair), including development of the project description, needs analysis, completion of the project and presentation of results at a forum. The project will be developed and carried out in liaison with an external organisation, thus provide students with a potential career network and career opportunities. Student projects will be used as case studies to examine ethical issues, risk assessments, people and time management, cost analyses, knowledge gap analyses, and development of oral and written communication skills. The unit will also examine resume preparation and interview skills as a prelude to the project.


Resume 20%, project description 20%, project presentation 30%, ethics 20%, peer review 10%
