In this unit, students will develop a detailed plan and academic justification for an engineering research project, supported by significant preliminary or proof-of concept work. Students will learn and use research methodologies and project management approaches to prepare them for tackling an extended engineering project from conception through to realisation. While students are expected to take ownership of their project, they should work closely with their academic supervisor to clearly define the scope, objectives, justification and methodology for the project. Students should also consider requirements of other key stakeholders,, as well as safety, risk and ethical factors in the design of their project.
Students will develop advanced theoretical and technical knowledge in their project area during the development and refinement of their methodology. Students will also design and conduct initial project work to demonstrate that the methodology or initial concepts are viable and that project objectives can be met.
The project designed in this unit and the preliminary project work undertaken in this unit will be continued and completed in SEJ446.
To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit students must achieve:
- a mark of at least 50% in both the project management portfolio (assessment 3) and the academic justification (assessment 4).
