Hours & Credits
OverviewFor this project you will carry out a literature review and analysis on a subject relevant to Biosystems Engineering and/or Engineering Technology in agriculture. You select a project on a relevant subject of your choice. With guidance from your personal supervisor you will use library books, journals and documents as your principal sources, possibly supplemented by Internet material, to compile a literature review which should include discussion of theory, applications and analysis of the chosen subject. You will be required to make a short presentation to your peers and teaching staff on the subject of your literature review. This module is a prerequisite for doing BSEN30410 Capstone Design Project, which is a core module for stage-4 Engineering Technology students.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please reference fall and spring course lists as not all courses are taught during both semesters.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
