During 2021 we will continue to support students who need to study remotely due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 and travel restrictions. Make sure you check the location code when selecting a unit outline or choosing your units of study in Sydney Student. Find out more about what these codes mean. Both remote and on-campus locations have the same learning activities and assessments, however teaching staff may vary. More information about face-to-face teaching and assessment arrangements for each unit will be provided on Canvas.

Unit of study_

CHNG4813: Engineering Project A

The ability to plan, systematically conduct and report on a major research project is an important skill for professional engineers. This unit of study builds on technical competencies introduced in previous years, as well as making use of the report writing and communications skills the students have developed. The research activity is spread over two units (Chemical Engineering Project A and B) run in first and second semester. In this unit of study, students are required to plan and begin work on a major research project, which is very often some aspect of a staff member's research interests. Some of the projects will be experimental in nature, while others may involve computer-based simulation, design or literature surveys. In this unit, students will learn how to examine published and experimental data, set objectives, organize a program of work and devise an experimental or developmental program. The progress at the end of Engineering Project A will be evaluated based on a seminar presentation and a progress report. The skills acquired will be invaluable to students undertaking engineering work. Students are expected to take the initiative when pursuing their research projects. The supervisor will be available for discussion - typically 1 hour per week.

Enrolment in this unit of study assumes that all (six) 3000 level core chemical engineering UoS have been successfully completed.

At the completion of this unit, you should be able to:

  • LO1. formulate an appropriate method for investigating a specific engineering question
  • LO2. document and report project work undertaken in a professional format with appropriate referencing
  • LO3. deliver a technical presentation that is clear, confident and engaging to an academic audience
  • LO4. develop in-depth knowledge of a specialised area within the discipline
  • LO5. formulate and plan a personal project investigating an engineering problem
  • LO6. employ originality, ingenuity and initiative in dealing with critical engineering issues
  • LO7. analyse data, draw appropriate conclusions and present those conclusions in context, with due consideration of methods and assumptions involved.

Unit outlines

Unit outlines will be available 2 weeks before the first day of teaching for the relevant session.

There are no unit outlines available online for previous years.
