This unit is the capstone of the Master of Environmental Management course. Students plan, execute and write up a substantial piece of research with the individual support of a research supervisor who provides discipline expertise and academic mentoring. The unit involves the preparation of a project proposal as a hurdle assessment, before the commencement of the research project.
This research project provides students with a unique opportunity to apply and consolidate many of the skills they have developed while undertaking the course-work component of the Master of Environmental Management. The project also allows students to focus on one area of investigation that is of interest. Undertaking independent research is invariably a transforming experience.
Students are expected to have identified a research topic and supervisor in the semester prior to the commencement of this unit.
If none of the projects listed below are of any interest; students may approach a range of researchers to discuss project ideas, prior to committing to any project or supervisory arrangement.
