This unit will provide you with the opportunity to showcase your knowledge and analytical skills through the presentation of a research project on an approved aviation-related topic. It provides you with the skills to plan and develop a major research project in the field of aviation. You will develop a project proposal, conduct a comprehensive literature review, and choose an appropriate methodology to be used for critical analysis. You are expected to critically analyse the secondary data, find solutions to the proposed research questions, and present findings of the analysis both in the format of a complete research project report and a formal presentation to project supervisors and peers. You are also expected to defend your projects by answering questions raised during the formal presentation. The work will be done with significant guidance provided by an academic supervisor.

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).
Each 12-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 25 hours of study per week, making a total of 300 hours for the unit.
|1. Research Proposal||20%|
|2. Project (research)||80%|
This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).
