Engineering Project A and B provide an opportunity for students to undertake a major project in a specialised area relevant to civil engineering. Students will generally work in groups, although planning and writing of reports will be done individually; i. e. , a separate report must be submitted by each student. Only in exceptional circumstances and by approval of Engineering Project course coordinator and the relevant academic supervisor concerned will a student be permitted to undertake a project individually. Engineering Project is spread over a whole year, in two successive Units of Study of 6 credits points each, Engineering Project A (CIVL4024) and Engineering Project B (CIVL4025). This particular unit of study, which must precede CIVL4025 Engineering Project B, should cover the first half of the work required for a complete 'final year' thesis project. In particular, it should include almost all project planning, a major proportion of the necessary background research, and a significant proportion of the investigative or design work required of the project.

Refer to the assessment table in the unit outline.
It is expected that the project will be conducted over two consecutive semesters and that the majority of students will start in Semester 1. Commencement in Semester 2 requires permission of Engineering Project course coordinator and School's Director of Learning and Teaching and will only be allowed where there are good reasons for doing so. Students considering this option should discuss it with the Engineering Project course coordinator at least one semester before they intend to start.
30 credit points of any 3000- or higher level units of study.
