Requisite(s): 42013 Engineering Graduate Project 12cp (Part 1 of 2) (2x6cp)
students are strongly recommended to enrol in this subject in the session immediately following the subject, 42013 Engineering Graduate Project 12cp (Part 1 of 2) (2x6cp)
A graduate project is a significant body of engineering work conducted in a professional manner and is documented in a comprehensive report. It provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate their advanced skills and knowledge 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 as part of 42013. 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.
