The purpose of this unit is to execute the project planned and developed in ACX3005 Graduating Project 1. This project provides the opportunity for students to implement knowledge and practise skills acquired across their course and to choose their own area of interest within their specialisation. Students are expected to produce a product or outcome which enhances their graduate employment prospects. Students are encouraged to assist each other, and working groups will be maintained (or established where appropriate) to support student collaboration. Projects may be undertaken with an industry and/or community partner.
