subjects studied up to that point. The main deliverable in the subject is a major project. In
this first assessment, the capstone project is proposed.
Proposals should introduce and then set the scope of the project. If the project involves an
industry partner, a letter of support from the partner is required in an appendix.
The learning facilitator will review the proposals and advise on the practicality or feasibility
of the proposals. If the learning facilitator believes that clearance from the university’s

to obtain HREC approval for any project involving research on human subjects.
