This course will be run over two consecutive semesters in 2022.
To pitch a project to start in Semester 1 2022, please add your projects in the “Propose a Hardware Project”. If you have any questions contact Dr Galvin directly, see details below.

Systems Project (ENGN4221 & ENGN4300 in 2022) is the capstone group project course in the systems engineering degree at ANU. This Capstone Project exposes students to an authentic engineering-based experience, both in preparing students to have the autonomy they will require to be graduate engineers and giving students the experiences and skills they need to be attractive to a variety of graduate jobs.
