Aims and objectives

This is a project-based unit in which students work in teams to design a solution to an industry driven challenge. The project will have a substantial emphasis on design. 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 design projects aligned to their chosen specialisation. This unit forms part of the student specialisation selection if their course undertaken has a choice of specialisation.
