The research project for Honours in Microbiology and Immunology aims to extend a student’s knowledge of microbiology/immunology and related areas; provide experience in research techniques and approaches with the advice and guidance of one of the research groups within or affiliated with the department; enhance the student’s ability to find and critically assess existing scientific information; to develop skills in communication (both written and oral) of scientific concepts related to microbiology/immunology and related areas.
Intended learning outcomes
- Select, summarise and critically appraise published research in microbiology/immunology and related areas
- Formulate a research hypothesis based upon a synthesis of the published research evidence
- Design and undertake appropriate research experiments to answer a research hypothesis in microbiology/immunology and related areas
- Conduct supervised research in a specific area of microbiology/immunology research
- Communicate the method and findings of a research project in oral and written form
Upon completion of this subject, students should have developed the capacity for critical review and synthesis of arguments based on evidence, the capacity to work cooperatively with others, experience in design, execution, analysis and presentation of experimental approaches and data, experience in giving oral scientific presentations, the ability to manage information effectively including the use computer technologies for scholarly pursuits, and the ability to communicate effectively in a public forum away from the scientific discipline.
