ENEG14005 - Engineering Honours Project Implementation

General Information

Unit Synopsis

As a student in the final year of your Bachelor of Engineering course, you will work independently to manage and implement a project (planned in ENEG14003) that allows you to demonstrate professional capabilities expected of graduating professional engineers. You will work and learn autonomously, communicate progress and prepare reports and presentations. You will conduct research to support your project decision-making, and you are required to demonstrate critical thinking and document sound analysis and judgement in project working documents and final reporting. You will solve technical problems that arise and evaluate project processes, outcomes and related learning experiences, and you will prepare a formal report, poster and project presentation. Note that if you completed the prerequisite Planning unit more than two terms ago then you need to check with your academic adviser to see if the project is still available.

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).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Assessment Tasks

This information will not be available until 8 weeks before term.
To see assessment details from an earlier availability, please search via a previous term.

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%).
