ENCL11002 - Light Vehicle Drive Systems

General Information

Unit Synopsis

This unit will cover safe work procedures and methods of diagnosing, servicing and repairing significant components of light automotive equipment in a workshop environment. You will learn how to develop and implement safe work procedures for the removal and fitting of a vehicle engine. The unit will cover the investigation, inspection and servicing of transmissions and driveline components. You will examine suspension, steering, wheel balancing, brakes and braking systems and then conduct practicals to implement servicing and repairs of these systems. Practicals will be completed on-campus providing you with the underpinning skills and knowledge required for the investigation, servicing and repair of significant light automotive systems. Lectures and online resources will prepare you for practicals. At a higher level, on completion of your practicals, you will be required to reflect and report on your learning.

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. Laboratory/Practical 0%
4. Portfolio 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%).
