This unit is taken over a full year with JEE421. 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 JEE421.
This is the capstone design unit for all three BE degrees streams (NA, OE, MOE). This unit consolidates the knowledge and capabilities developed through previous years of study. Maritime engineering design involves developing complex solutions through the combined inputs of various discipline specialists. This unit develops further management skills including, the ability to work with team members from other fields of study.

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.

* The Final WW Date is the final date from which you can withdraw from the unit without academic penalty, however you will still incur a financial liability (see withdrawal dates explained for more information).
Unit census dates currently displaying for 2022 are indicative and subject to change. Finalised census dates for 2022 will be available from the 1st October 2021.
- 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.
- 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;
- Develop written and oral technical communication skills.
