Unit Code: PEB801

Unit Name: Capstone Design Project I

Description: In Capstone Design Project 1, you will complete the first part of a capstone design project that you are subsequently be expected to complete in the next semester. The project involves the investigation of an engineering problem related to your discipline. During this course you will plan your project, conduct a critical review of relevant published material known as a ?literature review? and undertake sufficient work to produce initial findings to support further investigation in developing the design of the engineering system. You will be introduced to key research and development process through lectures and coursework on research methods and design reviews. The project work will require significant research/investigation and reflection. It will also include attention to aspects such as engineering analysis, design, testing and programmeming. The capstone design project presents an opportunity to integrate relevant knowledge and skills from preceding and concurrent courses in your programmeme. Each student/student team will have a different, approved design objective and is expected to produce a report of professional standard. You will perform your project work with a high degree of independence and take ownership of that project. This capstone design project activity is undertaken in conjunction with industry or in a simulated engineering work environment, thereby contributing to your experience of Work Integrated Learning (WIL). You will be supervised by an internal School supervisor (academic) but you may also have an external supervisor (such as an industry-based practitioner).
