  • Overview

    The fourth year engineering project is an opportunity for students to conduct a definitive piece of independent research in an environment and manner that utilises their learnt skills and knowledge to develop further their engineering research skills. With the guidance of a staff supervisor, students will define a research question, identify its foundation in our existing knowledge, recognise or develop the skills/tools required to investigate the question, apply scientific methods to explore the problem in a methodical fashion, and analyse and present results in clear, concise and structured reports, posters, and oral presentations. Students must be able to demonstrate satisfactory progress in Project I in order to complete their work in Project II.
