    LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS

    The projects will address real-world problems and challenges.

    For approximately half of the semester, lectures will discuss generic project management and communication principles and skills, relating them back to the student projects. In the other half of the semester, workshops and tutorials will introduce specialist topics and skills that the students may need for their project work. Throughout the whole semester, practicals are run that offer students a dedicated time for getting together as a team. These practicals also offer opportunity for in-depth discussion with the lecturers of approaches students may choose or challenges they may face in their projects. Further, students are expected to self-organize project including time line and task management.

    CAREERS / INDUSTRY LINKS

    The Merri Creek Management Committee (MCMC) serves as outside client for the student projects. They provide an introduction into their work, the Merri Creek, and the kind of challenges they are facing at the beginning of the semester (typically week 2), as a client will discuss the project proposals with the individual groups (typically in week 5), and will participate at the student presentations at the end of the semester.

    Students who are working (part-time) in relevant work places are free to use resources (equipment or colleagues/supervisors as consultants) from these work places in their project work as long as this is properly indicated.
