Mechanical Engineering Project A
|Course code MECH4841A||Units 10||Level 4000||Faculty of Engineering and Built EnvironmentSchool of Engineering|
This course is Part A of a multi-term sequence. Part B must also be completed to meet the requirements of the sequence.
Part A and Part B must be in consecutive terms (regardless of mode - ie semester/trimester/block).
Students must complete Part A before completing Part B. Students must complete the sequence within a twelve month period. If students complete Part A but are unable to complete Part B within the timeframe, they must re-enrol in Part A.
Provides students with the opportunity to apply the skills developed over the previous three years to an open-ended engineering problem of their choice. Projects are supervised by a member of the academic staff and may be experimental, theoretical, computational or practical in nature. An important goal is to help students develop project and time-management skills, and the ability to communicate through the report and seminar.
