Parts 1, 2 and 3 must be completed to fulfil the requirements of the unit. This unit involves the investigation of a particular topic in electrical and electronic engineering. The investigation involves a study of problems posed, and based on this, the design and implementation of possible solutions.
Students gain knowledge of recent developments in specified areas, a higher level of problem-solving skills, and develop their communication skills in written and verbal forms.
The assessment of students' level of performance in meeting the objectives of their allocated project is conducted through the following means: (1) a written interim report submitted at the end of the first project semester (to provide feedback to students on their progress); (2) the presentation of a seminar on their project (measuring presentation skills) in the second project semester; and (3) a written technical report at the conclusion of the project which incorporates an assessment by the supervisor of the student's overall performance.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
