Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering
ECE4094 & ECE4095 - Thesis Projects A & B
The project units (ECE 4094 and ECE 4095 combined) are a challenging opportunity to pursue an individual project independently and are likely to require extended effort. The two units together include a preparatory literature review and developmental work such as design, construction and programming. Students choose a project that interests them, and are assigned to a single or a team of supervising staff members.
After the completion of this unit, students will be able to:
- Critically assess and formulate a problem through analysis of relevant published literature
- Create/Select and apply appropriate resources and tools to work over an extended period on a complex engineering problem
- Organise complex technical information and communicate both orally and in writing
- Evaluate and apply fundamental principles of electrical and computer systems engineering to a complex engineering problem
- Develop/Design an appropriate solution to solve a complex engineering problem
- Assess and synthesize results of investigation to provide valid conclusions
- Assume responsibility and comply with safety aspects of the project
- Follow environmental guidelines as required
- Comply with ethical principles relevant to the project
- Initiate ideas to solve complex problems and have the desire to work independently
- Organise and manage a project of significant duration to an agreed timetable and budget
Two semester long project work which consists of the following assessment components:
- Risk Analysis
- Requirement Analysis
- Design Document and Mid Semester Progress Report
- Final Thesis Report
- Final Presentation
Private study 12 hours consisting of researching and reading, meetings with supervisors, attending training workshops, preparing documentation and doing project work.
All level four students must engage in a final year project (FYP). Moodle is the official website for ECSE project management. Once you are enrolled in project units, visit Moodle on a regular basis to keep yourself updated about course requirements and deadlines. Students seeking to do projects are advised to discuss their interests with members of staff and make a joint decision on the choice of topic.
The supervisor will then update Moodle accordingly to formalize the project allocation. Closing date for the project selection is Friday, Week 1 of the semester.
