Credit Points 10

Coordinator Kejun Dong Opens in new window

Description This unit describes engineering as a profession, highlighting professional ethics and legal obligations. The focus will be on the development of design skills or research and presentation skills for students enrolled in this unit. This will be achieved through the use of appropriate design/research skills on a capstone project, which will be either design oriented or research oriented on a specialist topic. Under the direction of an academic supervisor and research mentor, the project will demonstrate the student's professional level of identifying, planning, and designing an engineering project while at the same time completing a technical progress report. The capstone project will be continued in the unit Final Year Project 2 (UG Engineering).
