41084 Fundamentals Studio A6cp; 9hpw; 2hpw (studio)
Requisite(s): 41082 Introduction to Data Engineering OR 48510 Introduction to Electrical and Electronic Engineering
Fields 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 fundamentals stage of the Data and Electronic Engineering majors.
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.
In the Fundamentals Studio, students focus on learning fundamental knowledge and skills needed to achieve the basic functionality of their chosen product. There is an emphasis on creativity and exploration of different approaches, both in developing technical expertise, as well as teamwork, communication and project management. Students should use this as an opportunity to extend the knowledge gained from other coursework subjects by learning new topics of personal interest.
