ENG9002 Research Paper 2

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Engineering & Surveying
School or Department : Faculty of Engineering & Surveying


Pre-requisite: ENG8001


This course provides the opportunity for graduate engineering students to produce a research paper relevant to their current research interests. The program of investigation will be designed by the student in consultation with the supervisors nominated for the research component of the degree. The program of investigation will require approval by the examiner of the Research Papers courses. A research paper will be produced at the conclusion of this course. If this course is taken without the student having developed substantial prior knowledge in the chosen area of investigation, the paper would normally be a substantial critical review of the relevant literature. However, if the student does have substantial prior knowledge in the chosen area, either through private study or by preparing one or more papers in this series on the same subject area, then a higher level of research paper is expected. This may involve the introduction of additional elements such as theoretical analysis, simulation, experiment design, data acquisition, and data analysis.
