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.

Learning Outcomes

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.

LECTURE QUIZZES
These will be relatively straight forward quizzes based on lecture content.  They will be completed on Learn.  They will open at the start of the first lecture on a given day and you have until 8 am the following day to complete it.  There will be a quiz for most lectures starting on Lecture 2.  Your total grade for the quizzes will be based on the top 80%.  No extensions, make-up quizzes or Special Consideration are available for this assessment

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).  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.

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.

Additional Course Outline Information

Assessment and grading system

In the case of an emergency that affects the whole course, the Course Coordinator, in consultation with the Dean,  may change the nature, weighting and timing of assessments, e.g. tests and examination may be replaced with assignments of the same weight or different weight at a different time and/or date (which, under certain circumstances, may be outside the prescribed course dates).  The ‘Special consideration’ process will also be  used for unforeseen circumstances that adversely affect the academic performance of students individually. The usual grounds for this are described in the UC policy ‘Special Consideration Procedures and Guidelines’, and personal circumstances due to a wider emergency event may also qualify.

Any or all assessments may be scaled after you receive your raw mark.

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.

Lecture Quizzes:
These will be relatively straight forward quizzes based on lecture content.  They will be completed on Learn.  They will open at the start of the first lecture on a given day and you have until 8 am the following day to complete it.  There will be a quiz for most lectures starting on Lecture 1  Your total grade for the quizzes will be based on the top 80%.  No extensions, make-up quizzes or Special Consideration are available for this assessment.

Late submission of work

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.
