General Information


Generating ideas, pitching a project proposal, assembling a design team and creating a development plan are vital skills that enable engineers to establish new projects. This unit takes you through the creative process of prototyping in consultation with stakeholders. Your team must enhance your design idea by seeking external input through continued stakeholder interactions and sharing of several functional prototypes. You will pitch and demonstrate your final design to an audience of peers and professional engineers. You will apply relevant fundamental discipline knowledge and skills, as well as, project management principles. Completing this unit will enable you to discover your creativity while honing skills exhibited by productive and innovative engineers.

Feedback from Have your say


Review scheduling of activities to enhance the learning experience.


Consider less time for the first two assignments to maximise time for prototyping and stakeholder engagement. Also, try to avoid similar assessment dates with other units at the end of the term.
