Engineering Project B - AMME4122

Year - 2018

To complete the research requirement for their engineering degree, students now have a choice of either completing Thesis A/B (AMME 4111/AMME4112) or Engineering Project A/B (AMME 4121/AMME4122). Engineering Project A/B is intended to be more practical in orientation while Thesis A/B demands extensive literature review and critical analysis of outcomes. Thesis is a program for individuals whereas Projects can be done by groups or by an individual. Engineering Project A/B is undertaken across two consecutive semesters of enrolment, in two successive Units of Study of 6 credits points each. Engineering Project A covers first steps of project work, starting with development of project proposal. Engineering Project B covers the second of stage writing up and presenting the project results. The fourth year engineering project aims to provide students with the opportunity to carry out a defined piece of independent design work in a setting and in a manner that fosters the development of engineering design skills. These skills include the capacity to define a engineering design problem, showing how it relates to prior art, identifying appropriate tools and methods, carrying out a design in a systematic way and presenting outcomes in a report that is clear, coherent and logically structured.
