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.

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 Through Moodle site

Feedback

All aspects of the unit including weekly lectures, tutorials, workshops, laboratories were managed properly. The teaching environment helped student learning. This was a student favoured unit delivery.

Recommendation

Keep it up and improve.

Feedback from Through Moodle site

Feedback

Selection of two projects should be on different areas of the fluid power system.

Recommendation

Two fluid power projects will be crafted focusing on two different areas.

Feedback from Through Moodle site

Feedback

More SimScape demos.

Recommendation

In the next delivery, additional demos on SimScape simulations will be introduced. In 2019, five brief demos were provided on the fundamentals of SimScapes simulations.

Academic Integrity Statement

As a CQUniversity student you are expected to act honestly in all aspects of your academic work.

Any assessable work undertaken or submitted for review or assessment must be your own work. Assessable work is any type of work you do to meet the assessment requirements in the unit, including draft work submitted for review and feedback and final work to be assessed.

When you use the ideas, words or data of others in your assessment, you must thoroughly and clearly acknowledge the source of this information by using the correct referencing style for your unit. Using others’ work without proper acknowledgement may be considered a form of intellectual dishonesty.

Participating honestly, respectfully, responsibly, and fairly in your university study ensures the CQUniversity qualification you earn will be valued as a true indication of your individual academic achievement and will continue to receive the respect and recognition it deserves.

As a student, you are responsible for reading and following CQUniversity’s policies, including the Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure. This policy sets out CQUniversity’s expectations of you to act with integrity, examples of academic integrity breaches to avoid, the processes used to address alleged breaches of academic integrity, and potential penalties.

What is a breach of academic integrity?

A breach of academic integrity includes but is not limited to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, collusion, cheating, contract cheating, and academic misconduct. The Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure defines what these terms mean and gives examples.

Why is academic integrity important?

A breach of academic integrity may result in one or more penalties, including suspension or even expulsion from the University. It can also have negative implications for student visas and future enrolment at CQUniversity or elsewhere. Students who engage in contract cheating also risk being blackmailed by contract cheating services.

Where can I get assistance?

For academic advice and guidance, the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) can support you in becoming confident in completing assessments with integrity and of high standard.
