Requisite(s): 42908 Engineering Project Preparation
Recommended studies:

students are strongly recommended to enrol in this subject in the session immediately following the prerequisite subject, 42908 Engineering Project Preparation



A graduate project is a significant body of engineering work conducted in a professional manner and documented in a comprehensive report. It provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate their advanced knowledge and skills gained as part of their coursework and apply these to a real-world engineering problem. The project may involve the development of a new technology, product and/or process, or the application of existing technologies, products and methods in a new way, to solve a problem. In certain cases it may be appropriate to undertake a critical review of a method, ideas, a technology or combinations of these. In all cases it is vital that the project can demonstrate a 'value-added' component that the student has originated.

The planning, implementation and documentation of the project are supervised by a member of academic staff. The scope of the work, the deliverables for assessment and the assessment criteria are negotiated between the student and the academic supervisor and documented in a learning contract that is signed by the student and supervisor(s). Industry-based projects are highly encouraged and an additional industrial supervisor may be involved. The responsibility of finding a suitable project topic and an academic supervisor rests with the student.
