"A special program that combines course work with intensive field research has also been developed. The field research course is unique to engineering students, and was established in conjunction with several Australian mining and engineering companies."
"Engineering students will also be placed with either local companies or will work with UWA graduate students on projects for their "hands on" field experience course.
In addition, all program participants will have the opportunity to travel to other parts of Western Australia where a special field component in Aboriginal culture is conducted. They will visit a variety of geographic and ecological zones which offer fascinating case studies in the links between human economic development and the environment."

My role is to help coordinate/administer activities in the unit including finding supervisors for your "Field Research" project.
Unit outline and assessment
The unit outline is available. When you meet your supervisor, please discuss
- the expected outcomes from the work - what kind of report or reports are expected, and when, and in what format;
- how your mark for the unit will be determined. For example will it be given for a final report that is like a research paper?
Please refer to the Unit outline. Note this represents the main principle for the unit and for detailed information, e.g., on assessment, please discuss with your supervisor(s).

MECH2499 What's new and useful, please share
Hi all, Welcome to this MECH2499 unit for your field reserach project. May I ask you to share with all your experience of things, tips and new ideas, everything that makes your study more smooth and stay enjoyable.
I'd propose you to contact your supervisor soon to touch base and get things planned up. It would be nice if you can write something about your project(s). This you can do by clicking the link to your subject area/project in the list of students/projects/supervisors.
Wish you a pleasant stay in Perth and UWA!
