Applied Project 2 is the implementation of the negotiated project (NEF3001 Applied Project 1) and represents the culmination of student experience in their course. It provides students with the opportunity to apply and integrate their knowledge and skills gained from earlier years and to develop strategies for their transition to professional life. This is achieved in the context of a negotiated two-unit, substantial applied project, related to their discipline area. Students will take responsibility for the organisation, implementation and evaluation of the various components required for successful completion of the project. In some cases projects will be conducted in collaboration with industry partners. Projects undertaken by small student teams are encouraged.
Applied Project 2 focuses on the implementation, delivery and evaluation of project outcomes to the satisfaction of the client (when relevant) and the academic requirements of Victoria University.
At the completion of the unit, students will hand over their project deliverables and present project outcomes in a report as well as oral presentation.
