Project Recruitment

Project Applications

Please complete the Project Application Template (docx) to apply. Please also:
  • use only this template for project applications,
  • submit your Project Application in PDF format,
  • observe the 1-page limit.

Your project application will be provided to selection panels composed of 4th-year Engineering students for the purposes of matching you to a project. You are requested to not include any personal, confidential or sensitive information in your project application.

Project applications are due for submission by the deadline shown in the Project Recruitment Schedule, above, through the Submission system item Project Applications.

Project Rankings

Please use the ENGR 301 Project Selection page to rank all of the available projects in order of preference. Note: You must login with your ECS credentials to avoid receiving an "Access to the requested page has been denied" error on this page.

Your preference ranking will be used to match you to the best panel for interviews and for the final match to a project. There will be two opportunities to rank your project preferences:
  1. on project application, and
  2. after the interview and prior to the final match.

Project Interview Schedule

Project interviews have concluded, thank you for your participation in the interview session.

Interview Format

There are 12 interviews in the hour, with each interview being a maximum of 4 minutes only. The interview format is the standard "question and answer" between panels and applicants. Please Note: It is the responsibility of the selection panels to keep to time.

Interview Questions

The selection panels are required to ask at least one question from the following "standard" interview questions:
  • What do you think the biggest challenge of this project would be?
  • Please tell us where in this project you would like to see innovation happening?
  • What are the single most significant technical and non-technical attributes you would bring to the project?
  • What would you do if you have a member who is not participating?
  • What experience have you had with miscommunication with someone else? How did you solve the problem?
  • Please give an example of when you took initiative in a group project.
Please Note: these questions are subject to minor amendment or expansion.

Student Agreements

All students are requested to sign a Student Agreement with the University: ENGR 301 Student Agreement (PDF). This agreement is based on the template provided as Appendix B of the University's Intellectual Property Policy (PDF). Any student with questions or concerns about signing the Student Agreement should feel free to discuss them with the Course Coordinator. You may read about the University's processes and policies on Intellectual Property at https://intranet.victoria.ac.nz/staff/research/resources-support/intellectual-property (requires login).

The deadline for submitting signed agreements is shown in the Project Recruitment Schedule, above. The process is:

  1. Sign by hand a printed or electronic copy of the last page of the ENGR 301 Student Agreement (PDF), in front of a witness, to indicate your acceptance of the whole agreement. Anyone can be a witness, there are no formal requirements. Witnesses then sign by hand and date the agreement.
  2. Scan (if signing a printed copy) the signed, witnessed and dated Student Agreement, using any of the scanner/copier units in the Library to send the scan by email to yourself.
    Scans must be:
    • Black & White
    • 300 dpi
    • PDF
  3. Submit through the IP Agreement submission item. Only PDF files will be accepted. Agreements must be submitted through the Submission system item IP Agreement.

Note: You are invited to seek independent advice concerning the specific terms of this agreement.

Industry Client Agreements

Clients external to the University sign a collaboration agreement, which references the Student Agreements and sets out the terms of the collaboration on the ENGR 301/302 group project. For reference please see the ENGR 301/302 Project Industry Collaboration Agreement Blank Template (PDF).
