On-campus unit delivery combines face-to-face and digital learning.
Aims and objectives
This unit of study requires students to plan and execute a substantial research or design-based project using their technical and communication skills to design, evaluate, implement, analyse, manage and theorise about developments that contribute to professional practice, thus demonstrating the achievement of AQF Level 8 and Swinburne Engineering Competencies. Depending on the engineering major, a project may be experimental and/or developmental in nature to include design, and construction, while others may involve programming, software development, modelling and simulation, design, and literature surveys. The outcomes of the project provide effective solutions to solve an industrial engineering problem for realising its social, economic, environmental and cultural benefits.
