Description Major Project Completion is the project realisation component of the student's final year program. The subject offers the student the chance to consolidate the range of methodologies and processes developed and evaluated in Major Project Commencement, that contextualise the principles and practices that will lead to the realisation of their identified design solution. The final design outcome will form part of the final year graduate exhibition. The design solution which students will be developing and submitting for this subject responds to the design brief developed in Major Project Commencement.
