Subject Description
All students must complete a 12 credit point thesis (ENGG452) normally over a period of two sessions - though Scholars Program students may elect to take ENGG453. Students are expected to spend at least 336 hours on the 12 credit point thesis. The thesis is a core element of the degree in each engineering course. The knowledge and skills acquired in the design, experimentation, analysis, management and communications aspects of the course are brought together in an individual project undertaken by the student under the guidance of an academic supervisor. Individual disciplines will advise further requirements at the start of the thesis.

Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Define a problem.
2. Retrieve and analyse previous work on related problems.
3. Formulate methods for problem solution.
4. Plan, design and construct and experimental or theoretical procedure where appropriate.
5. Collate and evaluate findings.
6. Communicate conclusions and solutions verbally and in writing.
