Content This unit can be taken as part 1 (6 points), parts 1 and 2 (12 points) or parts 1, 2 and 3 (18 points). Students can commence the unit in either semester 1 or semester 2. The unit forms part of the Master of Engineering in Oil and Gas and requires students to write a report/dissertation on a subject of their choice. It is the students' responsibility to choose a subject of interest to them and possibly to their organisation. The topic can be in any area of oil and gas engineering. 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.
Assessment Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
