This unit is a capstone project for students immediately prior to them leaving for their chosen career. It encompasses a number of skills gained during the course of study and is a reflection of what they can anticipate when entering employment as a graduate engineer. Projects will have a research element to them although some may not necessarily be research based but rather industry specific. The learning style is predominantly student-led with direction from a supervisor through face-to-face or on-line meetings. It is anticipated that an artefact will be produced as part of the project process. This may be a virtual prototype of a product or a process but will be necessary in-order students can test and evaluate their chosen design direction. A design based approach including the generation of a product design specification is an integral element of the unit. The final thesis will be a scholarly piece of work documenting the major findings of the research project and reflecting on the progress and outcomes against some pre-agreed deliverables.


Oral poster presentation 20%, final year project report 60%, supervisors mark including logbook 20%.  To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit compulsory attendance is required by all students to unit-specific activities at Waurn Ponds (Geelong). These unit-specific activities may be undertaken either at scheduled sessions on multiple days during the trimester or during a single day of unit-specific activities scheduled during Week 8.
