Design of Nutrient Control System
The topic is "Design of Nutrient Control System".The aim of this assignment is to provide you an opportunity to learn how to apply engineering-related knowledge and skills in proposing an engineering project and in planning project tasks. This project proposal is a report that defines the initial aims, scope and resource requirements for the project. Students will need to demonstrate a clear understanding of key literature that supports the need for the project, as well as detailing the specific aims and scope to be ad-dressed. You should consult with your supervisors or/and industry advisers in order to design re-alistic project tasks and experiments.
2.0 Learning Outcomes
This assignment has been devised to allow students to demonstrate progress towards achieving the following unit learning outcomes:
ULO1 – Critically conduct a literature review in an area related to the project topic
ULO3 – Formulate a detailed project proposal that contains background information based on the literature review, methodology to be used to carry out the project, and the proposed timeline.
Students are encouraged to review all other learning outcomes to discover additional learn-ing opportunities which will increase the quality of their submission and final results.
You have by now finalised and registered your engineering project, either with academic supervi-sor or industry supervisor (in some cases joint supervision by academic staff and industry per-son). Your project problem is from a range of topics and disciplines and you will be working on this problem in order to identify potential solutions and determine the ‘optimum’ solution by ap-plying principles of project management to the client.
After you have finalised and registered your engineering project, you are to develop a “Project Proposal or Scope Document” that clearly defines the project problem and requirements. The scope document must be prepared in consultation with your project supervisor. This will include project objectives and expected outcomes.
This submission is about your Project Plan Proposal. You are required to independently write a project proposal in consultation with your supervisor for specific requirements. You are advised to refer the "Project Plan" template available in unit CloudDeakin Website and your proposal document should complete most sections of the "Project Plan" template. You can make adjust-ments to this template needed for your project.
You submission should include evidence of substantial relevant literature search to gain an un-derstanding of problem and methods associated with your project which will also be included in the Scope document. The detail project methodology identifying potential ‘optimum’ solution/s by applying principles of Project Management must also be included.
In addition, the Project Plan/Scope Document must demonstrates effective project management techniques e.g. MS Project, meeting documentation, Gantt chart, project documentation work-book, etc.
