Unit description

Students identify a suitable environmental management/education/IT issue or research topic. They use the skills they have gained throughout their degree to design a methodology suited to the issue and gather relevant information. Students prepare a project proposal, and a final report. The Integrated Project prepares students for the transition into professional life. 

Unit content

The Integrated Project requires students to work on a topic with a supervisor. On campus students will work on campus with a supervisor and online students will work online with their supervisor. Shared unit instructions will be delivered by the unit assessor via Blackboard . Therefore, there is no syllabus.
