Subject outline

The subject is available to individuals who are more focused on research-based learning and who do not wish or who are unable to secure a WIL placement. The subject runs for 10 weeks as a continuation of the project you commenced in EMS4ARA. Projects can either be industry based, that is, the project comes from industry, but the work is not completed within the company, or university based, that is, a project developed by the Department of Engineering which could be laboratory, computer based or investigative. You will work independently on your project and are expected to maintain regular contact with your supervisor/s.

Learning ActivitiesStudents research their chosen project topic under the guidance of their supervisor. They are expected to propose multiple solutions to a given problem and decide upon the best solution given a set of practical constraints. Students must then demonstrate good problem-solving skill and use appropriate tools to implement their proposed solution and overcoming technical challenges. Students submit a technical paper which sets out the necessary background knowledge, the scope and goals of their project and the method/s and results of their project. At the end of the project students will present their project work to a group of their peers and to a group of supervising staff. This presentation describes the background to the project, the methods that were used, outcomes and recommendations for future work. This presentation forms part of the assessment. Students will submit a poster and a technical paper as well. Students submit a reflection journal which sets out their self-reflection on personal learning outcomes.
