General Information

Overview

This unit is designed so that students can complete an investigative study through the analysis of, reflection on and critique of, an area of their professional practice that was commenced in Engineering Research Project Planning. By completing this project, students will contribute to the body of knowledge for their discipline. Students will present their project in a thesis and a professional presentation.

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).

Class and Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 12-credit Postgraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 25 hours of study per week, making a total of 300 hours for the unit.

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 Unit evaluation

Feedback

Good support and guidance from the UC which helps students progress with their project submissions.

Recommendation

This practice will be continued in future offerings.

Feedback from Unit evaluation and reflection

Feedback

Students face difficulties in getting their experiments scheduled due to clashes with other laboratory activities.

Recommendation

Encourage project supervisors to collaborate with lab techs in a timely fashion and ensure all project experiments are confirmed well in advance.

Feedback from Unit evaluation

Feedback

Some confusion prevails between the submission templates provided and the grading criteria

Recommendation

Investigate and ensure that all information is consistent.

Feedback from Unit evaluation

Feedback

It would be good to undertake more industry-based projects

Recommendation

Explore opportunities to develop more real world and industry based projects using the various industry networks.

Unit Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Implement the project plan prepared in the planning unit with consultation and guidance from your project advisers and stakeholders
  2. Think critically, demonstrate sound analysis, and make rational, justifiable decisions in order to find the optimal, sustainable solution
  3. Demonstrate leadership by contributing to the body of knowledge related to the discipline area and participating in professional networks
  4. Communicate preliminary results to stakeholders through interim and regular progress reports to solicit timely and constructive feedback
  5. Communicate findings using written and oral methods to inform both internal and external workplace practising professionals
  6. Critically reflect on self-performance and develop a plan for lifelong and professional learning.
