EDSE13002 - Industrial Skills

General Information

Unit Synopsis

This unit investigates the nature and functions of available resources, through the application of inquiry, design and problem-solving methodologies for a range of industrial skills. It requires the student to identify and understand a problem or need, select appropriate resources and strategies that may solve the problem, then implement a plan and evaluate the outcome. While participating, students are exposed to a range of intellectual challenges which develop practical skills associated with welding and thermal cutting, safety equipment and safety to current Australian Standards. Welding and Thermal Cutting form the basis of the range of Industrial skills developed over the duration of the unit and involves the design of engineered artefacts, where safety is paramount. Through practical workshops and associated theory, students will apply the knowledge and skills of industrial skills necessary to teach Industrial Technology and Design in the senior years of schooling.

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).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Online Quiz(zes) 20%
2. Written Assessment 30%
3. Practical Assessment 50%

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%).

Unit learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering industry practices
  2. Apply the use, development and impact of design concepts and problem solving through the construction of a series of design based activities
  3. Plan and develop a series of design based activities for construction which develop practical skills associated with hand and power tools, machinery, safety and equipment
  4. Investigate how to plan, sequence, implement and assess design application processes used in the production of projects incorporated in the industrial technology and design teaching area
  5. Critically evaluate specific applications of tools and equipment used in the manufacture of products for welding and thermal cutting
  6. Apply appropriate workplace health and safety and maintenance practices when using hand and power tools.
