Final Year Engineering Projects (FYEP) present students, project supervisors and assessors, professional accreditation bodies and industry project sponsors with many challenges. Interest in the supervision and assessment of FYEPs led to a successful CQUniversity Learning and Teaching Grant and subsequent report to investigate teaching practices in sixteen Australian and New Zealand Universities. This paper presents key issues raised by the pilot investigation, and outlines plans for follow-up research by a team of scholars from seven universities. This research is funded by a successful Australian Government grant, ―Assessing Final Year Engineering Projects (FYEPs): Ensuring Learning and Teaching Standards and AQF8 Outcomes.
