Project Requirements

This assignment asks you to gather the requirements for your project. The assignment brief and requirements template are in Markdown format for your convenience: project-requirement.md (Markdown). See ISO/IEC/ IEEE 29148 29148-2018-requirements.pdf document. Page specifications in the document are limits not targets and refer to the pages in the PDF generated from the markdown. Some sections may not apply to your group, for example some of the software specific aspects may not be applicable to the hardware / ECEN project. Please check with your academic supervisor and tutor, and ask them any questions or post a query on Mattermost either group channel or Student Chat channel. Nothing needs to be submitted into the ECS submission system, just leave the project-requirement.md file in your GitLab project in the master branch.

Individual Performance Review Assessment

These are assessments of how well you have individually performed against 5 traits which are an Engineer's core competencies when working on projects.
