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.

This assignment asks you to write an architecture and design document. The assignment brief and architecture template are in Markdown format for your convenience: architecture-design.md (Markdown). 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.

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. For full details, please see the Performance Assessments brief (PDF). Throughout your project work, and as part of the performance assessments, you and your group must setup and regularly maintain the project requirement and the architecture design for your project.

Individual Structured Report

Group Presentation

Presentations are part of the project progress tracking, covered in lectures. Each team is expected to present their current status of their project and will be group and individually assessed based on the Presentation Marking Guide (PDF). Please refer to the Presentations page for further instruction and advice on the preparation of a presentation for assessment in ENGR 301. Slides are to be submitted by all groups by the deadline indicated in the Submission System TBD. Any student unable to attend on the day of the presentations should contact the Course Coordinator Craig Anslow directly, by TBD.
