This is an in-person course. Contact your course convener or supervisor to see if your project can be undertaken remotely.

This course provides an opportunity to explore in depth any topic that has a connection to nuclear science or technology. This may take the form of a research essay, a critical literature review, or a practical investigation, using for example the ANU's Heavy-Ion Accelerator facility. The topic must be agreed between the student and a supervisor, and approved by the convenor.

Learning Outcomes

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

  1. On satisfying the requirements of this course, students will have demonstrated an in-depth understanding of a particular aspect of nuclear science or technology and developed skills to present the results of their investigation in an appropriate manner. Specific learning outcomes must be negotiated at the beginning of the course.

Indicative Assessment

  1. Assessment will be customized to the specific project at the beginning of the course. Typically it could include a laboratory logbook and/or a research report, possibly in the format of a journal paper. All candidates must make a seminar-type presentation showing evidence of wide reading, depth of understanding, critical analysis and/or pertinent use of experimental and analysis techniques, as appropriate to the topic.

For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.

Workload

The expected workload will consist of approximately 130 hours per 6 units of enrolment throughout the semester/session including:

  • Face-to face component which may consist of a combination of weekly on-campus and self directed study to be negotiated with the project supervisor.
