Overview

This is the capstone project course for the Associate Degree in engineering that students normally complete during their last semester of study, or after at least 10 courses in the program have been successfully completed. This project course both differentiates this program from the Bachelor of Engineering Science program, and satisfies registration requirements as an Engineering Associate of Engineers Australia (EA).

Students will work in small teams on design based projects that enable them to demonstrate problem solving and design optimisation skills. Completion of the chosen project shall validate their achievement of the graduate attributes required for an Engineering Associate. Each group of students will work on an engineering related project for which they will collectively develop design options, carry out cost-benefit analysis and recommend a solution that is optimised within safety sustainability requirements. Suggested project topics from industry are welcome, but may not be offered in the same year as proposed to ensure thorough vetting by the staffing team. Working in teams will reinforce students' group interaction skills such as negotiation and interactive thinking. The available projects will require students to apply and integrate their discipline-specific skills and knowledge acquired during their Associate Degree program.
