This unit is the second of two in the Safety Science Thesis suite of units. During this unit you will learn about the process of conducting safety science research by executing your research plan (post ethics approval) from Thesis 1, that is, data collection and analysis, writing and presenting your research findings to a wider audience. You will also be able to engage with your peer researchers as they progress through their research journey.

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 Postgraduate 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.

This is the second unit of two research thesis units and is designed to complete the foundational
work that students carried out in Thesis 1. The two Thesis units are designed to introduce students to
the process of conducting research, enabling them to carry out an independent research study. In Thesis
2 the students will continue to work with their allocated supervisor who will support them in the conduct of
their research, the undertaking of an extensive literature review and assist in the preparation of a final
piece of work which can deliver the student's research findings to a wider audience. Students will also be
able to continue to discuss the unit content and their research progress with their fellow peer
researchers through Moodle site discussion groups.
