In this unit, students will develop a detailed proposal and undertake preliminary or proof-of concept tasks for an engineering research project. The unit uses the concept of research methodologies as a vehicle for student self-directed learning and prepares them for tackling an extended engineering project from conception through to realisation. Students will work with an academic supervisor to formulate a proposal that clearly defines the scope, objectives, justification and methodology for the project and incorporates consideration of any key stakeholder requirements, as well as safety, risk and ethical factors. The proposal will allow students an opportunity to obtain advanced theoretical and technical knowledge in their project area during the development of the 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 proposal and 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 the final project proposal and progress report.
