About this Unit
This is the second of two units (Field Project 1 & Field Project 2) that are designed as ‘capstone’ units of study for the Bachelor of Natural Science degree. They draw together the skills acquired in previous years of the degree course and apply them in the context of a year-long research project exploring a real world problem on behalf of a client in industry, government or community agency. In the first unit the student will have developed skills in scoping, planning, and piloting methods for a research project. In this second Field Project unit the student will collect and organise a significant body of relevant field data, analyse this and present the conclusions and recommendations in the form of a report to the client that provides the student’s answers to the client’s initial problems. The student then undertakes a critical review of the whole process to identify lessons for both personal and professional development and future career planning.
