The subject course has as its central focus a design and build project that draws its context from addressing problems faced by a mythical Gondwannan population. Through it, students are exposed to an authentic design experience across a range of technical domains in an integrated semester long process. They grapple with user needs, requirements analysis, concept and detail design reviews and prototype demonstration. The course, as run at the University of New South Wales, Canberra, is described in the paper and the facilitation of the course academically and physically is discussed.
