SUST5009: Research Project C

2024 unit information

Students either alone or in teams of 2-4 members propose a research enquiry (possibly based on their employment). If students are working as a team then each student must present and report on a discrete aspect of the project, while also showing how each part builds towards the whole. The project is multidisciplinary and should cover at least 2 sustainability theme areas (energy and resources, food and water, health and populations, policy, society and change, business, and sustainability analysis) and be approved by the Unit Coordinator. Students must also demonstrate an understanding of sustainable systems by considering the social, environmental, and economic consequences of their project. The Unit Coordinator will appoint an academic advisor for each student or group. Students will keep a diary/log of their activities, to be submitted for assessment at the end of semester.
