Project title:
Project Dragon - Virtual Reality (VR) Crisis Management Simulator
Description of the project:

This project will reuire students to utilise gaming technology to develop a VR (Virtual Reality) crisis management simulator based on existing engineering data.

This project looks to utilise existing design data (geometry/simulated) within a gaming engine to investigate new was of interacting across stakeholders within a virtual environment.

If you are an engineer, passionate gamer, or love VR and tech, this project is for you!

Project Aims:

The aim of this project is to demonstrate that engineering data can provide value to stakeholders past the design stage. By using gaming technology and hardware, this project seeks to create a virtual environment that can be used to simulate various crisis scenarios.

Working with our software, Unity and engineering specialist, you will pull together several data sets to develop a playable simulator (crisis scenarios to be agreed as part of the project definition).

Attributes:

This project is suited to Mechatronics engineering students who are familiar with simulation fundamentals and exposed to Computation Fluid Dynamics (CFD), and Mechanical/Electrical design.

Students who have a passion for gaming and understanding of the game development process, and who have experience dabbling in game development, particularly Unity, are encouraged to apply.

Applications for this project are welcome from penultimate and subsequent year undergraduates, Masters and PhD students (coursework and research) who are currently enrolled full-time at Monash including for the period December 2018 to end of February 2019.

Selection Criteria:

Your application will be reviewed by senior university members and assessed against the following criteria:

  • Quality of covering letter, resume and on-line application including spelling & grammar
  • Relevance of your degree to the project(s) you select
  • Skills, ability, knowledge and experience relevant to the project (s) you apply for
  • Extra - curricular activities (i.e. sports/clubs & societies/memberships)
  • Career goals & ambitions
  • Academic performance
  • Successful completion of group activity
  • Successful interview with industry partner

Please note:

  • Scope for MITI projects are determined by the industry partners, this includes student disciplines and whether they require students at undergraduate, Masters or PhD level.
  • The final selection of the MITI project team will be made by the industry partner.
  • Each industry project will run for 12 weeks over the summer vacation period that is December 2018 through to February 2019 - you must be enrolled as a full time student during this period.
  • If selected you must be available and agree to commit for the entire 12 week period.
