General Information

Overview

This project-based unit will introduce you to fluid drive systems and the design and control of integrated drive systems for use in industries. It covers comparison of characteristics, construction, selection, design and operation of fluid drives and control systems; use of mathematical models to analyse performance; machine protection and control schemes; and evaluation of drive system performance. You will apply formulas and explain and record calculations. You will adopt professional approaches to work in teams and learn collaboratively to manage and complete projects. You will manage your own learning; investigate, design and check designed works performed; and communicate professionally using discipline language to present designs and problem solutions. Distance education students are required to have access to a computer, to make frequent use of the internet, and are required to participate in residential school activities.

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).

Residential Schools

This unit has a Compulsory Residential School for distance mode students and the details are:

Assessment Overview

Assessment Grading

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Policy for more details of interim results and final grades.

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 student evaluation

Feedback

The project team dynamics is important.

Recommendation

A team dynamics document will be introduced along with the team charter documents to enhance teamwork.

Feedback from Unit Moodle design

Feedback

Enhancing group assignment configuration in unit Moodle

Recommendation

The group assignment configuration on Moodle will be improved to enhance the assignment feedback and satisfaction.
