Unit Name: Engineering Capstone Project

Description: The Capstones are substantial culminating learning experiences in the final stages of the Dip Eng programme, offering closure and focus for the sense of achievement that comes with completing this programme. The Capstone will usually incorporate some research, development of professional capabilities and critical reflective practice. The Capstone experiences or projects makeup one whole semester course and maybe a group-based project with individualised components or an individual project. Externally oriented or scenario-based projects. Students engage in a professionally oriented project to develop a solution to a given industry/client problem. Industry/client-based problems can be actual or imagined, or the project may be linked to a contemporary industry problem or scenario-based issue developed by the lecturer. Students shall be presented with a context or problem (see attached) and work towards a solution in defined stages whilst project managing the gathering of information, undertaking analyses, making decisions, managing workflow, and developing options and professional-style outcomes.
