Applied Technology Project ZAT224

Introduction

In this unit, you will work on an applied technologies project that will enable you to demonstrate problem-solving and design optimisation skills. Your discipline related project will include developing design options, carrying out a cost-benefit analysis and recommending a solution that is optimised within safety sustainability requirements. You will scope and define your own project.

This unit introduces you to the following:
- discipline-based skills and knowledge in dynamic practice situations. This will include authentic and purposeful, industry-related experiences
- concepts of managing effective relationships and communicating with others
- the development and use of adaptive leadership skills and how these skills relate to innovative and entrepreneurial practice
- the nature of responsible, accountable, and reflective workplace skills, and creative and critical thinking relevant to para-professional practice.

You will exercise self-awareness, initiative, and judgement to manage yourself and professional relationships effectively.
