Delivery of this course will vary from student to student. Contact your course convener or supervisor to see if there is an on campus activity.

This module is designed to connect postgraduate coursework students, on an individual or group basis, to active researchers at the ANU. The student will be expected to participate in a project at a postgraduate level. The project topic can be any area related to Photonics provided appropriate supervision exists.  Students are advised to contact the Academic Contact for information on available projects.

Learning Outcomes

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

On satisfactorily completing a research topic in Photonics, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
1.  Plan and engage in an independent and sustained critical investigation and evaluation of a chosen research topic
2.  Systematically identify relevant theoretical concepts and models, and relate these to appropriate methodologies and evidence
3.  Keep accurate and detailed records of work undertaken, including literature review, lab work or computational work
4.  Work constructively with active researchers on real research problems
5.  Critically evaluate their own work and results, as well as results reported in the literature
6.  Communicate research concepts, contexts and results clearly and effectively both in writing and orally.

Indicative Assessment

1.  Logbook or project portfolio providing continuous evidence of the student's research efforts and conceptual development (40%; LO 1-6)
2.  Formal written report (50%; LO 5, 6)
3.  Oral presentation (10%; LO 6)

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.
