Field of practice: Data Engineering



This is a studio subject. It is not a conventional subject guided by a curriculum. Its purpose is to provide an environment in which students can translate the knowledge they have or can gain into what they can do.

This is the first studio in the applications stage of the Data and Electronic Engineering majors. The majors have six such studios, two in each of the stages: fundamentals; applications; and professional.

Studios are product-based subjects, largely conducted in the studio, in collaboration with other students, academic staff and industry mentors. Students do a combination of individual self-directed study and project work as a team.

The stages of the projects are the means by which students learn how to apply their knowledge to what they can achieve. The stages follow the classic engineering paradigm of assess, design and implement.

The individual tasks are guided by a learning contract established at the beginning of the session.

What differentiates the applications studios from the fundamentals studios is the expectation of the level of proficiency of students. Once students have completed two fundamentals studios and a range of coursework subjects, it is expected that they have the skills and knowledge to allow them to undertake the development of more challenging products.
