|Unit:||CHNG5222: Dissertation A (12 CP)|
|Faculty/School:||School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering|
A/Prof Minett , Andrew
|Session options:||Semester 1, Semester 2|
|Versions for this Unit:|
|Prohibitions:||ENGG5220 OR ENGG5221.|
|Brief Handbook Description:||To complete a substantial research project and successfully analyse a problem, devise appropriate experiments, analyse the results and produce a well-argued, in-depth thesis.
Department permission required for enrolment in the following session(s); 1,2
|Additional Notes:||In order to enrol in a project, students must first secure an academic supervisor in an area that they are interested. The topic of your project must be determined in discussion with the supervisor. The supervisor can come from any of the Engineering Departments, however, they need to send confirmation of their supervision approval to the Postgraduate Administrator.|
|Department Permission||Department permission is required for enrollment in this session.|
Attributes listed here represent the key course goals (see Course Map tab) designated for this unit. The list below describes how these attributes are developed through practice in the unit. See Learning Outcomes and Assessment tabs for details of how these attributes are assessed.
|Attribute Development Method||Attribute Developed|
|Select appropriate engineering principles to solve an open-ended problem.||Design (Level 3)|
|Develop research skills and to cope with ambiguity.||Information Seeking (Level 3)|
|Understand that engineering is practied in non-ideal, poorly defined situations.||Professional Conduct (Level 3)|
For explanation of attributes and levels see Engineering & IT Graduate Outcomes Table.
Learning outcomes are the key abilities and knowledge that will be assessed in this unit. They are listed according to the course goal supported by each. See Assessment Tab for details how each outcome is assessed.Design (Level 3)
