This is a project oriented design based learning (PODBL) unit where students will develop and apply control systems knowledge and skills required to deliver an application-based project relevant to industry in the electrical, electronic, microprocessor, mechanical and mechatronics disciplines. Students will work as a team to deliver a project solution, while developing an individual portfolio to demonstrate technical and professional practice knowledge and skills. Emphasis will be placed on developing an approach or solution beginning from the problem definition phase and continuing through to a demonstrable prototype. The unit will cover elements of professional practice relating to project management, and communication of technically challenging complex concepts. In particular, focus will be placed on implementing complex techniques on associated hardware and software.
