This is a studio subject. 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 second of two studios in the professional stage of the Data, Electronic and Electrical 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 Professional Studio, students focus on their future role as a professional engineer, and how that can be reflected in the product development process. Students may choose products which are more industry-focused, research-focused, or pursue their own entrepreneurial products.

As part of demonstrating a professional approach, students are expected to apply industry standards and/or best practices in their work and engage with the full product development lifecycle, from stakeholder needs analysis through to validation and verification of the final outcome. Students should think more broadly about their product beyond the technical deliverables, and may consider issues such as commercialisation, intellectual property, ethics, equity, privacy and security as appropriate to the specific product.
