Description This unit is a continuation of unit Engineering Project 1 (PG). Students will further develop their professional skills in engineering design, research, and presentation. This will be achieved through the independent work on the proposed engineering design or research topic under an academic supervisor. Students are required to employ the identified design plan or research methodologies to carry out the proposed design or research work, fulfil the design or research objectives, evaluate and analyse the results, and present the results and findings in an oral presentation, a research paper and a final project report. This unit will demonstrate students' professional level of conducting an engineering project.
