Content This unit can be taken as part 1 only, parts 1 and 2 or parts 1, 2 and 3. Students can commence the unit in any trimester. The unit forms part of the Master of Business and Engineering Asset Management course and requires the student to write a report/dissertation on a subject of their choice. It is the student's responsibility to choose a subject of interest to them and possibly to their organisation. The topic can be in any area of engineering asset management. Discussions should be held with staff to identify an academic project supervisor and to ensure that there is sufficient academic breadth and depth to meet academic standards at postgraduate level.
Outcomes In this research project, students apply and extend the technical, analytical, management and communication skills from the core models to a specific challenge in the engineering asset management field.
Assessment This comprises project reports and presentations for those electing to do part 1 only or parts 1 and 2; and project reports, a dissertation and presentations for those electing to do parts 1, 2 and 3.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
