This is a final year capstone project-based unit in which students work individually, or in teams if the project is a large industry project, to apply their skills to generate an engineering technology solution to an industry challenge. The project is part 2 of a year-long project. Having an overall focus on engineering technology innovation, students will be focussing on the design and implementation stages of the year-long project continuing on from the work completed in the Engineering Technology Project A unit and under the guidance of an Academic facilitator.

As the minimum requirements of assessment to pass a unit and meet all ULOs to a minimum standard, an undergraduate student must have achieved:

(i) achieve an overall mark for the unit of 50% or more, and(ii) complete the project to an acceptable standard. A rubric will be used to determine if students have met the acceptable standard. The rubric is available on Canvas;. Students who do not successfully achieve hurdle requirements (i) and (ii) in full, will receive a maximum of 45% as the total mark for the unit.
