Aims and objectives

This unit of study is a project-based unit in which students work in teams to innovate a solution to an industry-driven challenge. Having an overall focus on computing technology innovation, you will be focusing on the research and development stages of the semester-long project. You will be able to select a project from a range of industry-oriented projects aligned to your chosen engineering major. An Academic 'facilitator' will guide your learning towards achieving these outcomes.
