This unit is taken over two successive semesters and parts 1 and 2 must be completed to fulfil the requirements of the unit. Students can commence the unit in either semester 1 or semester 2. Students undertake a major research project on a topic offered by project supervisors.
Students are able to gain experience in research methodologies and learn how to plan and execute a research program. They develop skills in problem formulation, in designing and analysing solutions and in the presentation of research findings by way of seminar and dissertation.
This comprises a research poster and the presentation of a seminar on the project topic, both of which are assessed by a panel, and a written dissertation which is submitted for examination.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
