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.
The Health Technology Innovation Thesis provides an opportunity to utilise technology to model and characterise a complex health challenge, preparing the way for future innovation and/or delivery of a novel technology solution to address an already well-defined health challenge. It is not expected that the project outcomes of this unit will represent a significant contribution to new knowledge. The unit aims to provide students with the opportunity to carry out a defined piece of independent research or design work in a setting and in a manner that fosters the development of skills in original research or design. The student will be required to demonstrate the desired learning outcome of combining cross-disciplinary contexts of health and technology and management of these in this task. This learning requirement will provide a strong base for future research within the CPC network or work opportunities in the health industry upon completion of the MHTI program. Projects can be directly tied to a candidate's vocational objectives or interests. Some projects will be experimental in nature, others may involve computer-based simulation, feasibility studies or the design, construction and testing of a software system or equipment. Candidates with experience and expertise from outside the health sector may be invited to partner with relevant team projects. Access to a registry of project opportunities, resources, consultants, co-supervisors will be provided. Students will generally work individually (or have an individual contribution to group project outcomes) for the semester.
