Aims and objectives

This is a project-based unit in which students work in teams to innovate a solution to an industry driven challenge. The project will have a substantial emphasis on engineering technology innovation. Teams of students will have a staff member as a ‘facilitator’ whilst working on this project. Student teams will be allowed to select a project from a range of industry oriented innovation projects aligned to their chosen major. This unit forms part of the student major selection if their course undertaken has a choice of major.
