Content

This unit is a capstone project for students immediately prior to them leaving for their chosen career. Students will undertake project work proposed in SEJ441, and then critically analyse and evaluate the results prior to communicating the project outcomes. It encompasses a number of technical engineering skills and an understanding of professional context in their discipline gained during the degree, and thus is a reflection of what they can anticipate when entering employment as a graduate engineer. Projects will have a research element to them in the justification of the approach and critical evaluation of results, 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.

 

Assessment

Project management 20%, Project exhibition 30%, final project thesis 50%.  To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit students must demonstrate a satisfactory performance (a mark of at least 50%) in each of the four unit learning outcomes (ULOs).
