Information about student projects
Commencing A Project
Please follow the instructional guide on how to commence a project within the School of Engineering.
- Undergraduate Students & Masters by Coursework (PDF, 26.8 KB)
- Higher Degree by Research (HDR) Students (PDF, 133.8KB)
No project work will commence within the labs without;
- The required Inductions
- A completed Project Safety Assessment (DOTX, 11.1 KB) that has been signed off by both the academic supervisor and the technician(s) for the labs you will be working in.
- Approval of Project budget (DOCX, 11.1 KB)
Note: Any project outside of the School of Engineering requires a Work Safety Assessment (DOC, 124.0KB) instead of the above Project Safety Assessment.
Project Working Spaces
Other than the individual engineering area laboratories, the product realisation laboratory is available to students working on projects. This space is open from 8am to 7pm, weekdays and contains general tools and consumables available for use.
Prior to working in this space you must have completed both a level 1 and level 2 induction. Some equipment and tools contained within this space requires a level 3 equipment/technique specific induction. Please refer to our inductions page for further information.
Budget & Pricing
Deakin undergraduate and masters by coursework students have a budget for their projects. The engineering pricing guide is being developed and is to be used in conjunction with the project budget form (DOCX, 11.1 KB) to calculate costings for their projects. Please refer to technical team for costing. Where the proposed cost of a project exceeds the budget, students need to reassess the project to see if costs can be reduced or seek additional funding.
All students must get their budget approved by project supervisor, unit chair and technical co-ordinator. Refer to the completed project budget example (DOCX, 11.1 KB) for assistance. For the cost of any other consumables/equipment not included in the pricing guide, please contact the relevant technician or refer to the relevant laboratory page.
