Under the guidance of academic mentors and industry mentors, this course provides a vehicle for guided but independent group project work on an industry-provided brief. The learning and effort in the course is largely group-based, with group members ideally being drawn from different discipline areas. Students will develop their skills in critical thinking, problem definition, creative and systematic design, precise written and oral technical communication skills, and professional skills including communication, team organisation and coordination. The course allows students to undertake and make prototype design and construction as part of the final phase of The Maker Games.

This course runs over two consecutive terms (3 UoC per term) for a total of 6 UoC at the end. Students must enrol in and successfully complete both terms of the course to receive full course credit. Partial credits will not be given.
