Engineering Masters Project (ENG615)

Organisational Unit Engineering and Energy
Credit Points 12
Availability MURDOCH: H-internal, S1-internal, SS4-internal, SUM-internal, WU3-internal, Y-internal
Teaching Timetables Murdoch S1
Description This project will address a problem of industrial significance, and will involve many aspects associated with the chosen Master of Engineering specialisation. Students will be expected to undertake the analysis, development and upgrade of a significant project. This project may require the student to be stationed at an industrial site.
Unit Learning Outcomes On successful completion of the unit students should be able to:
1. Identify and summarise relevant information from published literature and other sources about a set
engineering task.
2. Apply your knowledge and problem-solving skills in a creative way to work towards a solution for a set
engineering task.
3. Design,implement, test and analyse a solution for a given engineering task.
4. Communicate the results of your work to an appropriate audience.
Timetabled Learning Activities Meetings/laboratories: by arrangement with the Project Supervisor.
Unit Learning Experiences This unit exposes students to engineering design or research through the implementation of a substantial project in the chosen Master of Engineering specialisation. Students are expected to independently work on an assigned project. Depending on the set task, the work includes examination, analysis and report on a design, the necessary research to undertake a design, the application of design practices to produce a solution and the presentation of results and findings through both verbal and written presentations. Weekly meetings with project supervisors allow for feedback, input and project progress monitoring.
Assessment Assessment tasks in this unit are aligned with typical engineering project tasks and skills including planning,
research tasks, progress reporting, design and problem solving, analysis and presentation of results.
Assessment tasks and associated feedback also provide students with opportunities to improve on their oral
presentation and technical report writing skills. Specifically, the assessment items consist of: 1. A Project Plan
2. A Progress Presentation 3. A Final Report 4. A Seminar Presentation 5. Project Assessment

Internet Access RequirementsMurdoch units normally include an online component comprising materials, discussions, lecture recordings and assessment activities. All students, regardless of their location or mode of study, need to have access to and be able to use computing devices with browsing capability and a connection to the Internet via Broadband (Cable, ADSL or Mobile) or Wireless. The Internet connection should be readily available and allow large amounts of data to be streamed or downloaded (approximately 100MB per lecture recording). Students also need to be able to enter into online discussions and submit assignments online.
