Represents the second stage of the research project commenced in the unit Engineering Thesis I. This stage involves conducting the investigation into the formulated project, and documenting the results and conclusions in a thesis. It introduces students to the nature of research and assesses their ability to undertake research and present the results in both written and oral formats.
This second stage of the engineering thesis requires students to work independently on their chosen research topic. Therefore, there is no formal syllabus for this unit.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
