This unit is only available to Master of Applied Science students and enrolment numbers will be restricted based on supervisory capacity.
In this unit, Masters of Applied Science students will learn skills in development of research project ideas and proposals. Students will develop a research plan for a small hypothetical project in a defined area of relevant research, which addresses an industry problem or gap in scientific knowledge. Guidance will be provided in finding and critically evaluating literature to develop a short literature review, which provides background for the research topic. Research questions, objectives, approach and methodology will be developed with assistance of a topic supervisor. Students will gain skills in communicating potential significance and benefits of a research project, both with an oral presentation and within the research proposal.
