Research Project (Part:2/2) JEE419

Note:

This unit is taken over one full year with JEE418.

This unit can only be undertaken once students have completed all year 3 units or with permission from Course Coordinator. Students must also have been enrolled in JEE418.

Introduction

Students develop, implement and carry out a research project under the supervision of at least one staff member from the National Centre for Maritime Engineering and Hydrodynamics or UTAS. The progress and outcomes of the research are assessed in the form of a research proposal, interim report, executive summary, oral presentation and a written thesis in journal article format. JEE419 is offered in combination with JEE418. Assessment of the project plan and interim report in JEE418 is on a pass/fail basis and is required to continue onto JEE419.
