This course is designed for BE postgraduate students, and prepares them to conduct research. It provides a basic understanding of designing a research project, with a focus on research design and an introduction to a range of research methods used in built environment disciplines. The course is taught in intense-block mode with concentrated periods of instruction.

There are accompanying tutorials for all students. For Higher Degree Research students (PhD, MRes, and MPhil), the tutorial sessions are conducted in the same semester, after the intensive lecture portion of the course is completed. For the professional degrees students, the tutorial is conducted as degree-specific breakout sessions in the following semester and has separate convenors for each degreeā€™s breakout stream.

Note: each tutorial will have separate course outlines where necessary.
