The Graduation Project is the culmination of the Computational Design studios and the Bachelor of Computational Design degree. It develops a written component (thesis) in CODE3201 that is underpinned through project / practice work in CODE3202. Both CODE3201 and CODE3202 are one package and students need to be enrolled in both. Graduation Projects will take research findings and knowledge gained in Semester 1 (CODE3100) and deepen and extend this knowledge in CODE3201. In order to assess their skills and monitor the progress of their thesis CODE3201 has following key objectives. Students will produce as a final thesis outcome a 4 - 6000 word report in form of a conference paper style submission describing and discussing their project. The research project context is defined by preliminary research done in Semester 1 and presented and confirmed at the final presentation in CODE3100. The thesis outline in detail: (1) Research aims and motivation; (2) Research Objectives; (3) Research Question; (4) Methodology to answer question; (5) Background Research; (6) Case study or the specific project students worked on; (7) Significance of Research by position it to the work by others (Test cases); (8) Evaluation of work; and (9) Conclusion.  Teaching in CODE3201 is done via a one-to-one supervision and thesis and project must fit within one of the seven paths and give students the chance to specialize in one of the paths as part of their degree and consequently gaining a proficiency level in the subject. We apply Design Research as a methodological structure for both, CODE3201 and CODE3202 as:"Design Research is a systematic search for and acquisition of knowledge related to general human ecology, considered from a 'designerly way of thinking (i.e., project-oriented) perspective."
