Description Advanced Engineering Thesis 2 - Detailed Investigations unit consists of a research project designed and implemented under the direction of an academic supervisor and research mentor. This unit is the culmination of studies for students who have completed their first three years of an undergraduate degree and provides substantial training in detailed Investigations. Under staff supervision, students are allocated a particular topic for their research, design their own programme of research, and perform the research. The emphasis of this unit is on the application of research knowledge gained in other units and in Engineering Thesis 1 - Preliminary Investigations to the practical conduct of the individual research project. This unit provides final year Advanced engineering students with the opportunity to undertake research on a specialist topic within their Key Program of undergraduate study.
