UG Coursework Unit
Faculty & College
Approval from the Unit Assessor is required to enrol in this unit. In order to obtain this approval, students must have developed a broad topic for their research project that is relevant to their engineering specialisation in consultation with an academic staff member, and obtained agreement from that academic staff member to supervise their project.
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.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
critically review and evaluate literature relevant to a research topic in your area of engineering specialisation using a thematic approach
define appropriate aims, scope and methodology for a proposed research project to address an identified gap in existing knowledge in your area of engineering specialisation
present a coherent written proposal that describes the background, aims, rationale, methodology, and anticipated outcomes for your proposed research project
identify the resources and approvals needed to successfully complete your proposed study.
