Subject Description
As an alternative to ENGG452, subject ENGG453 (18 credit points) may be taken by students in the Engineering Scholars program, or by other high achieving students with the permission of the Sub Dean of Engineering. A student electing to take ENGG453 will undertake a longer period of work and complete a longer thesis. Students are expected to spend 504 hours on the 18 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 an experimental or theoretical procedure where appropriate.
5. Collate and evaluate findings.
6. Communicate conclusions and solutions verbally and in writing.
