Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

You must have satisfactorily completed the prerequisite course Professional Engineering Advanced Project Part A (EEET2349 - City Campus or EEET2354 - Vietnam) before you commence this course.


Course Description

In Professional Engineering Advanced Project Part B, study and application of specialised knowledge will be continued with further development of advanced technical design skills and personal skills through substantial project work. You will complete the major individual design project and will practice professional levels of documentation, customer liaison and reporting. The projects will demand high levels of technical competence and organisational skills and will provide practice in exercising enterprise skills. Projects may be industry based.

Professional Engineering Advanced Project Part B will focus on system implementation, integration and optimisation, testing and evaluation, and project documentation and reporting including project presentation and demonstration.

You will be required to liaise with your academic supervisor on a regular basis (at least fortnightly) working towards successful completion of your project. Project progress will be regularly assessed and form part of the final assessment. You are expected to spend a minimum of nine (9) self-directed hours per week on the design project during the semester. The course includes both lecture classes and individual coaching by the academic supervisor.


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

This course develops the following Program Learning Outcomes:

  1. Be able to apply problem solving approaches to work challenges and make decisions using sound engineering knowledge, principles, methodologies and skills.
  2. Be able to apply a systematic design approach to engineering projects and have strong research and design skills in your specialised areas.
  3. Communicate effectively across all modes: listen, speak, write and draw.
  4. Apply the principles of lifelong learning to any new challenge.


On successful completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Demonstrate independent engineering design capabilities. 
  • Manage a complex project to a given timeline with financial and resource constraints. 
  • Apply engineering problem solving methods through analysis and synthesis. 
  • Demonstrate technical work in a coherent and logical way.
  • Compose a project thesis in a fluent and coherent style and present the project work clearly and coherently to the relevant audience in a form meeting AQF (Australian Qualifications Framework) Level 9 requirements.
  • Demonstrate proficiency in your chosen area(s) of specialisation.


Overview of Learning Activities

The individual design project provides the backbone to this course. This is a project-based learning activity that will require you to exercise many of the skills required in engineering employment. Project work will help you to apply theory to professional practice.

Project work must involve:

  • Regular (at least fortnightly) meetings with your academic supervisor recorded by meeting minutes with clear agenda, progress updates/reports, and action points.
  • Detailed project plan with a comprehensive timeline and milestones.
  • A final design and design specifications.
  • System implementation, integration and optimisation, testing and evaluation.
  • A project thesis in a form meeting AQF Level 9 requirements.
  • Actual hardware/software/presentation/documentation work required to produce the deliverables on time.

Lecturing schedule will be available on the Blackboard via Learning Hub.


Overview of Learning Resources

  • Lecture notes as applicable. 
  • Library and electronic resources. 
  • You will be expected to have access to suitable computing equipment for system development. Required software will be made available where possible. 
  • Relevant specialised equipment and software will be made available in laboratories and for loan where possible. 
  • You are expected to tailor the scope of your project to resource availability.

RMIT will provide you with resources and tools for learning in this course through our online systems.
