This course is designed to mimic an industrial design problem as closely as practical in a university setting. Students are assigned to teams and given an ill-defined problem statement. From the problem statement, the students are responsible for developing the full set of requirements and key performance indicators to guide the design. The students then proceed through a systems design process including conceptual design, sub-system requirements, and quantitative tradeoff analyses, using the full range of engineering science and professional skills developed during the degree course. The course emphasises teamwork (both team leadership and membership), communication skills (formal and informal, written and oral), and team and personal management and a professional approach to engineering design.

Learning Outcomes

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

1. Synthesise technical engineering knowledge and approaches to generate solutions to a complex design project.

2. Develop, analyse, and critically evaluate alternative design options in order to justify and generate designs in a real-world project.

3. Apply project management and organisational skills to produce time-sensitive deliverables in a multi-disciplinary team.

4. Effective transmission of engineering design decisions and solutions using appropriate media to professional and lay audiences.

5. Demonstrate and reflect on leadership and creativity as an individual and within a multi-disciplinary team.

Professional Skills Mapping:
Mapping of Learning Outcomes to Assessment and Professional Competencies 

Indicative Assessment

• project progress documentation (65%) including project initiation document, preliminary project plan, systems requirement specification, conceptual design review, project management plan and preliminary design presentation
• final design report (35%) and associated documentation.
The grade for each team member will be moderated around the team grade based on peer review.

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

10 budgeted hours of group work as determined by the needs of your project plan, which will evolve over the semester. Indicative duties include design, research, management, and documentation tasks.
