Proposal

Analyse and evaluate the chosen design from variety of perspectives. In addition to the engineering analysis, analyse the design based on prior experience, experience by other teams, literature review, time and financial constraints, rules compliance, social and ethical concerns, health and safety concerns, conflicting stakeholder requirements, and other conflicting requirements, to determine the total benefit to the team.

Academic integrity

The University of Auckland will not tolerate cheating, or assisting others to cheat, and views cheating in coursework as a serious academic offence. The work that a student submits for grading must be the student's own work, reflecting his or her learning. Where work from other sources is used, it must be properly acknowledged and referenced. This requirement also applies to sources on the world-wide web. A student's assessed work may be reviewed against electronic source material using computerised detection mechanisms. Upon reasonable request, students may be required to provide an electronic version of their work for computerised review.

All students enrolled at the University of Auckland are required to complete a compulsory Academic Integrity course, usually in their first semester/year of enrolment. The University of Auckland’s full guidelines on procedures and penalties for academic dishonesty are available here.

This site intends to guide you through your chosen specialisation at the Faculty of Engineering. The semester links lets you view detailed course information for your chosen course. Please note that the structure displayed for your specialisation here will reflect what’s available over the upcoming semesters, but detailed information may be from a previous year.

All the information here is accurate at the time of publication, but you are are advised to additionally consult our official document, the University of Auckland Calendar, for accurate academic regulations, requirements, and policies.
