Design Project (Part:1/2) JEE421



This unit is taken over a full year with JEE422. This unit can only be undertaken once students have completed all year 3 units or with permission from Course Coordinator.


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.

Learning Outcomes

ILO 1 Develop the steps in the execution of an engineering-design project:

a. For the given objective(s), constraints, and requirements identify the appropriate design parameters, assumptions, and alternatives.

b. Apply discipline-specific technical concepts to select the appropriate design option(s) of an ocean vehicle, structure, or system.

c. Apply the appropriate engineering methodology to evaluate the design options and develop the selected option into a final design.

d. Critically assess the design and its execution, and recommend potential improvements, if any.

ILO 2 Establish, monitor and review your own system of time and resource management to ensure progress and maintain the integrity of the design output in a functional multi-disciplinary team.

ILO 3 Develop written and oral technical communication skills

Mutual Exclusions

You cannot enrol in this unit as well as the following:


Teaching Pattern

4 hours Workshops weekly

  • Design proposal and project execution plan 10%
  • Interim report 10%
  • 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).
