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 applications 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 Applications Studio, students focus on developing specialist theoretical knowledge and practical skills relevant to their chosen major. There is an emphasis on analysis, modelling, benchmarking and simulation in the product development process, as well as more advanced theoretical understanding.

What differentiates the Applications Studio is the expectation of the level of proficiency of the students. It is expected that students have the knowledge and skills to undertake the development of more challenging product development tasks.
