Use UN SDGâ€™s as a framework to inspire uses (teams can select their own, or we can set a specific goal each year). Identification of the ethical and environmental considerations Talk to someone who has relevant industry sector knowledge e.g. source other department experts at Swinburne, etc. development of broad technical requirements needed by the project application selected. One technical requirement/component to prototype is selected by each team to continue to develop the broader technical system and understand use case with more depth user needs. Test idea with a relevant stakeholder/s related to applicationÂ (e.g. end use of whale migration, a marine biologist might be consulted to understand the use case requirements. development of prototype design for selected space technology/research application Interdisciplinary team skill training and developmentÂ Study resources Reading materials A list of reading materials and/or required textbooks will be available in the Unit Outline on Canvas.
