Content

This unit is a research project unit. Students are required to undertake research on a well-defined area, which may include designing solutions for clear problems identified as part of their project proposal. 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, security, 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 using the proposed project plan. The project proposal and preliminary project work undertaken in this unit will be continued and completed in SIT431 - Honours Research Project B.
