General Information

Overview

In this unit, you will apply, expand and reflect on your knowledge of professional engineering practice through investigating a real-world engineering project. You will work in a small team guided by a professional engineer or members from the Engineers Without Borders Challenge to develop your project outcomes. You will establish a scope for a team project that describes the requirements and potential issues involved. You will also design and conduct a technical investigation incorporating the engineering method of problem-solving to assess several viable solutions and; look to enhance project outcomes by applying concepts of sustainability and evidence-based decision making. You will also demonstrate an understanding of measurement techniques and data analysis methods in at least one technical area of engineering, and demonstrate professional communication skills by creating a team technical report and presentation. Throughout the unit, you will be compiling an Individual Portfolio to showcase your sustained contributions to the project and to demonstrate a professional attitude for working individually and in your team.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Staff and student evaluation survey

Feedback

A variety of projects should be offered for each cohort.

Recommendation

Projects are sourced from our industry partners but some disciplines may not be represented in some campuses. We will endeavour to locate a variety of projects for each campus and students studying by distance.

Feedback from Staff and student evaluation survey

Feedback

Students do not like the 100% portfolio assessment and this should be revised to better reflect the workload throughout the term.

Recommendation

Assessment should be revised to include summative items based on the submissions made during the team project.

Feedback from Staff and student evaluation survey

Feedback

Some additional curriculum should be taught to support all project investigations.

Recommendation

Weekly focus activities should be established to help students develop the skills required for general project work.

Feedback from Student evaluation

Feedback

Lectures were clearly delivered and presented useful information for project investigations.

Recommendation

Weekly lectures should continue to support project investigations.

Feedback from Student evaluation

Feedback

Students greatly appreciated the opportunity to work on authentic projects and receive guidance from practising engineers.

Recommendation

Offering real projects supported by interactions with our industry partners will continue.

Feedback from Staff

Feedback

Students completing projects with Engineers Without Borders were reluctant to enter the EWB Challenge and attend the National Showcase.

Recommendation

Expectations for entering the EWB Challenge and passing on project deliverables to industry partners should be made clearer to students.
