Content

This unit is for students to develop independent research skills. Students will be required to work on their research project and undertake scientific inquiry following successful confirmation of candidature for a Master of Science (Research) program.  Students are required to work closely with advice from their supervisor for the duration of their candidature. The research project is to be undertaken over two trimesters full time duration.  At the end of their study in this unit students will be required to complete a major research thesis, which gives them an opportunity to apply and present knowledge gained through their research investigation in a chosen field of study. Assessment of student learning will include the submission of a major thesis that will be assessed by at least two examiners and presentation of research and research findings in a formal seminar.
