Final Year Project B
Final Year Projects represent the culmination of study towards the Postgraduate Engineering degree. Projects offer the opportunity to apply the material learned throughout the program, extend and advance the knowledge through research. Assessment is by means of a seminar presentation, submission of a thesis, and a public demonstration of work undertaken.
Projects are undertaken individually or in small groups. This necessarily introduces the dimension of workload management into the program to enable completion of a large, relatively unstructured “assignment” over the course of two semesters.
The projects undertaken span a diverse range of topics, including theoretical, simulation and experimental studies, and vary from year to year. The emphasis is necessarily on facilitating student learning in technical, project management and presentation spheres.
This course consists of a combination of Part A and Part B which reflects the full year multi term sequence program. Part A must be completed before Part B is commenced.

Semester 1 - 2018
Semester 2 - 2018 (Callaghan)
On successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
he student(s) and supervisor. Students will be required to:
1) perform a literature search to review current state of the art knowledge and developments in the chosen technical area;
2) undertake detailed technical work in the chosen area using one or more of
:• theoretical studies
• computer simulations
• hardware construction;
3) produce progress reports or maintain a professional journal to establish work completed, and to schedule additional work within the time frame specified for the project;
4) deliver a seminar on the general area of work being undertaken and specific contributions to that field;
5) prepare an interim report describing the work undertaken and results obtained so far; and
) Present the work in a forum involving poster presentations and demonstrations of operational hardware and software.
|Multi-Term Sequence||This course is part of a multi-term sequence. Both Part A and Part B must be completed to meet the requirements of the sequence. Part A and Part B must be completed in consecutive terms. 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.|
|Assumed Knowledge||First year of Electrical, Computer Systems Engineering Postgraduate degree.|
