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.
Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)
On successful completion of this students will be able to:
1. Apply a systematic approach to computing technology innovation
2. Apply knowledge of innovation fundamentals to computing technology challenges
3. Find, organise, and make decisions on a range of topics related to computing technology innovation
4. Use technology to develop and present innovation solutions
5. Demonstrate reflective practice, and use self and peer evaluation
6. Communicate within teams and stakeholders using appropriate verbal, written and technological approaches
