This course will only be offered from 2022

In this course, students undertake an individual engineering research or design project under supervision.

Students are encouraged to put forward their own ideas for the individual project, or they may select a project from a range of projects offered by researchers across the ANU. The topic area would normally be expected to be in the same area as the major (or one of the majors) being completed by the student.

Project topics and supervisory arrangements should be finalised well before project commencement.

Students are expected to manage all aspects of their individual project from conceptualization through the planning phase to the monitoring and control of the project performance and the ultimate achievement of the assessment deliverables.  Details of the project process, roles and responsibilities and possible projects are given on the ENGN4350 Community Site.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Identify a substantial research and/or complex design project including the problem the project seeks to address, its context and significance in contemporary engineering, scientific or research fields.
  2. Scope the selected project appropriately and identify and determine knowledge, skills and methodologies required to complete the project.
  3. Apply research skills and methodologies to identify, collate, summarise and critically evaluate relevant literature, data and sources.
  4. Combine and demonstrate synthesis of new knowledge with the application of relevant underlying theory, skills, concepts and methodologies in relevant engineering and/or scientific fields.
  5. Analyse, interpret, explain and evaluate results generated during the project and compare and contrast to existing work and literature where appropriate.
  6. Communicate the project objectives, process, knowledge and results to practising engineers and scientists in written and verbal form.

Indicative Assessment

  1. Quizzes (15) [LO null]
  2. Midterm Report (10) [LO null]
  3. Thesis and presentation (75) [LO null]

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.

Workload

Students must enrol in both Semester 1 & 2.

The work-load expectation for Individual Project is no less than one full day per week during each semester, including the mid-semester teaching break. It is strongly recommended that additional time is spent during summer holiday (early start involving literature survey, learning to use equipment, preparatory experiments, etc.).

Inherent Requirements
