Description

This skills-based course will introduce students to the "engineering process". Through a series of lectures, exercises and projects, the students will gain experience in specific skills and activities that contribute to the engineering process. Examples include problem solving, technical sketching, team work and report writing. Additionally, the importance of sustainability, ethics and biculturalism in an engineering context will be introduced. Students will also gain a better understanding of the different engineering disciplines in regards to a career choice.

Passing Grade:
To achieve a pass in this course you must obtain:
• an overall mark of 50% or above
AND
• a final exam mark > 40/100.

ASSIGNMENT SUBMISSIONS:
All assignments must be stapled securely at the top left-hand corner and MUST have a completed cover sheet attached. Submissions without a completed cover sheet attached will not be marked. Assignments must be handed in to the boxes provided on Engineering Core by 3.00 pm on the due date. Please ensure that you hand in your assignment to the box corresponding to YOUR workshop stream. Assignments due in a given workshop session must be handed in to the workshop tutor at the beginning of the session.

LATE OR MISSED COURSEWORK:
ALL late work must be handed in directly to the Senior Tutor, Dr Alfred Herritsch, A404, Link building as soon as possible and will be penalised 25% per day or part thereof (weekends will be counted as one day for this purpose).

SPECIAL CONSIDERATION:
ALL late work must be handed in directly to the Senior Tutor, Dr Alfred Herritsch, A404, Link building as soon as possible and will be penalised 25% per day or part thereof (weekends will be counted as one day for this purpose). Late work will only escape penalty by provision of a relevant medical certificate or other sufficient documentation to the Senior Tutor, preferably before the due date but no later than 7 days after the due date. Missed work will receive no marks unless a relevant medical certificate or other sufficient documentation is provided to the Senior Tutor. Missed work for which a medical certificate or other sufficient documentation is provided will be awarded marks based upon the average marks of the class for the particular item of assessment and the relative performance of the student concerned in other items of assessment.

DISABILITY RESOURCE SERVICES:
For those students registered with Disability Resource Services and have a Learning Support Plan in place, please remember to contact the Senior Tutor Alfred Herritsch if special arrangements are required for the test or the exam at least 10 days before. In regards to the Academic Writing Assessment (ENGR100), this is completed in your Week 2 workshop. If your support plan allows for a special provision for this type of assessment, there is a mechanism to opt out of this occurrence on the day. An appropriate, alternative assessment will be provided. You may also contact the Senior Tutor directly prior to the assessment.
