Aims and objectives

This unit of study is a project-based unit in which students work in teams and aims to provide you with the opportunity to design a solution to an industry driven challenge within your chosen major. You will attain the various technical skills required to complete the project as well as a range of professional skills to enable you to work creatively and collaboratively in an industry context. An Academic 'facilitator' will guide your learning towards achieving these outcomes.

Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)
On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
1. Apply a systematic approach to engineering technology design (A1, A5, K1, K2, S1)
2. Apply knowledge of design fundamentals to engineering technology challenges (A5, K3, K5, S1, S2)
3. Find, organise, and make decisions on a range of topics related to engineering technology design (A4, A5, K3, K5, K6, S2)
4. Use engineering technology to develop and present design solutions (A5, K4, K5, S2, S3)
5. Demonstrate reflective practice, and use self and peer evaluation (A2, A5, A6, A7, S4)
6. Communicate within teams and stakeholders using appropriate verbal, written and technological approaches (A2, A5, A6, S3, S4)
