Project work undertaken by individuals is a central practice for Graduate positions in both flying and non-flying sectors of the Aviation industry. At the professional level project work routinely involves research in the sense that there are non-standard requirements to be met and non-standard problems to be overcome. The project (comprising AVN3103 Supervised Aviation Research Project Part 1 immediately followed by AVN3107 Supervised Aviation Research Project Part 2) is intended to integrate and augment the student's total formal knowledge by means of its application to a real problem at the appropriate professional level.
This course (being the first half of the project) will comprise firstly the selection, negotiation and approval of a project topic appropriate to the student's major study. Following this the student will (i) research the background, context and literature, (ii) develop an appropriate methodology, (iii) demonstrate a sound appreciation of the overall task and its constraints by formal reporting, and (iv) make substantial progress in the execution of the work to provide an appropriately structured preliminary project report at the end of the course.
