This unit is a capstone. Students will be able to demonstrate the successful completion of an engineering project, together with a unit of Engineering Project 1, with emphasis on the ICT discipline or focus area, including theory and practice of network and software engineering construction. This unit is holistic in design, giving students comprehensive skills and the knowledge required for professional practice. Students will gain experience in managing a project over the entire engineering lifecycle, including concept, requirements, specification, research, design, construction, commissioning and testing, in addition to risk control and debugging. Students will also gain practical skills in using computer design tools and improving their skills in time management, project management, setting inch and milestones, setting and meeting deadlines, scheduling and resource management. Students will be given the opportunity to put into practice the skills, they have learnt at University. In particular, their research skills will be enhanced, including problem solving in a variety of situations.
Upon successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Seek, identify and analyse requirements to assess the scope, quality, schedule and resourcing, to realistically determine the dimensions, scale and indicative costs of a complex engineering project;
2. Accommodate relevant contextual issues within all phases of engineering project work, including the fundamentals of business planning and financial management;
3. Proficiently apply basic systems engineering and/or project management tools and processes to the planning and execution of project work, targeting the delivery of significant outcomes to a professional standard; and
4. Demonstrate engineering professionalism and ethics and demonstrate commitment to sustainable engineering practices and the achievement of sustainable outcomes in all facets of engineering project work.
