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 each engineering Major, some of the projects will be experimental and/or developmental in nature to include design, construction, programming, while others may involve computer-based simulation, design or literature surveys.
Unit Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
#Unit Learning Outcome Description
ULO1Manage a research project effectively using project management processes and tools, and self-management skills, within technical, budgetary, risk and time constraints (K1, K2, K3, K4, K5, K6, S1, S2, S3, S4, A2, A3, A4, A5, A6)
ULO2Apply effective research methods, practices, principles and technological tools to implement a complex engineering project work; with data acquisition, data analysis, interpretation and synthesis (K3, K4, S1, S2, S3, A2, A3, A4)
ULO3Apply problem-solving methodologies to provide logical reasoning and hypothesis testing to generate, evaluate and justify innovative solutions (K1, K2, K3, K4, S1, S2, S3, A3)
ULO4Demonstrate effective professional written and oral communication to a variety of audiences through proposals, business arguments, reports, documentation, presentations, and demonstration or analysis of project outcomes (A2, A4)
ULO5Reflect on professional engineering practice and its impact on the project, including safety, ethical, legal, social, cultural and sustainability considerations, along with standards and codes of practice (K5, K6, S4, A1, A2, A4)
