Engineering Project A and Engineering Project B will normally be taken consecutively in the final two semesters of the degree. Each student is required to undertake a substantial high level two-semester project within their engineering discipline, which may involve aspects of research and development work, engineering design, literature survey, experimental work, theoretical work, computational studies, simulation, prototype testing and implementation. Masters projects are required to have a significant research component to develop skills required for a research higher degree (PhD). At the end of Engineering Project B a typset, printed and bound thesis is to be submitted along with an electronic copy of the final thesis which is submitted via Turnitin. The electronic copy will be retained for the University of Tasmania library thesis collection. Students are also expected to do a public presentation of their completed work at the end of the semester.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
