In Capstone Design Project, you will work as an independent group to deliver value on a real-world project. Teams will work to define and scope their project in consultation with project clients, and tailor and manage system life-cycle processes to the delivery of the project.
In the early stages of the course, students will undertake a research methods module, designed to improve the quality of the final deliverables. During the project, you will be situated with other teams to simulate an engineering firm working on multiple projects, and will take a lead in reviewing the output and processes of other projects.
You will be expected to negotiate, scope, manage and deliver on all aspects of a significant design project, and present your work at a public showcase towards the end of the project. As a capstone course, you will be applying what you have learnt throughout their degree, including the systems methodology throughout the Engineering Design core and your engineering major. Project teams will be formed during a Team Formation event in the first week of your first semester.
Engineering Design @ ANU
At ANU, students are challenged to think of engineering design at a systems-level. At this stage in your degree, you will be using engineering design to make a positive impact on society through five domains: design, analysis, research, professional practice and teamwork. In Capstone Project, you will be able to navigate the whole project autonomously, drawing upon earlier Engineering Design courses and your major.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Synthesise technical knowledge and approaches to generate solutions to an open-ended engineering problem
- Develop, analyse, and critically evaluate alternative options in order to justify and generate solutions in a real-world project
- Apply research skills and methodologies to identify, collate, summarise and critically evaluate relevant literature, data and sources
- Apply project management and organisational skills to produce time-sensitive deliverables in a multi-disciplinary team
- Transmit design decisions and solutions using appropriate media to professional and lay audiences
- Demonstrate and reflect on research, leadership and creativity as an individual and within a multi-disciplinary team
- Design Project (70) [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.
