Aims and objectives
This is a project-based final year capstone unit in which students work individually, or in teams if the project is a large industry project, to apply their skills to generate a combination of computing and engineering technology solution to an industry challenge. The project is part 1 of a year-long project. Having an overall focus of engineering technology innovation, students will be focusing on the research and development stages of the year-long project. Students will be able to select a project from a range of industry-oriented projects aligned to their chosen engineering major and will work under the guidance of an Academic facilitator.
