    For this project you will carry out a literature review and analysis on a subject relevant to Biosystems Engineering and/or Engineering Technology in agriculture. You select a project on a relevant subject of your choice. With guidance from your personal supervisor you will use library books, journals and documents as your principal sources, possibly supplemented by Internet material, to compile a literature review which should include discussion of theory, applications and analysis of the chosen subject. You will be required to make a short presentation to your peers and teaching staff on the subject of your literature review. This module is a prerequisite for doing BSEN30410 Capstone Design Project, which is a core module for stage-4 Engineering Technology students.
