This is the capstone design unit for all three Maritime Engineering degrees (Naval Architecture; Ocean Engineering; Marine and Offshore Engineering). This unit consolidates the knowledge and capabilities developed throughout the previous years of study. Maritime Engineering design involves complex solutions developed through the combined inputs of various discipline specialists. This unit further develops your project management skills including the ability to work with team members from other fields of study.

  • JEE421 oral examination 15%

These tasks are assessed on a pass/fail basis while the student is enrolled in JEE421. Students must receive a passing mark for a minimum of two of the above assessment tasks in order to qualify for an interim completion (IC) grade for JEE421. 

The final result for this unit will be updated once the student completes JEE422 Design Project (Part: 2/2) and is calculated based on the combined assessment results from JEE421 Design Project (Part: 1/2) and JEE422 Design Project (Part: 2/2).
