Description

The capstone project consists of subjects that aim to consolidate the application of engineering knowledge and skills for problem-solving. It is carried out in two phases: the preparation and planning phase in this subject, and the implementation phase in 41030 Engineering Capstone. Students undertake the capstone project in their final year of study.

In these two subjects students solve complicated engineering problems that respond to industrial, academic and personal interests, taking a systematic approach. The types of capstone projects that students can undertake include research and development, investigation, experimentation, design, building and manufacturing. Students in this subject develop skills in research design, project management and critical communication.

This subject, Engineering Research Preparation, emphasises the development of the theoretical framework and the associated project plan for a student's capstone project. The subject is followed by the implementation phase in 41030. Both subjects aim to strengthen students' knowledge application, and research and communication competencies to the graduate level for engineering practice as per Engineers Australia Stage 1 competencies and faculty graduate attributes. Both subjects also align with Australian Qualifications Framework criteria of graduation concerning knowledge, skills development and application to the bachelor's (level 7) and honours (level 8) degrees.
