ENTA12018 - Gas Turbine Engines

General Information

Unit Synopsis

Gas turbine engines are an integral part of modern aircraft. In this unit, you will develop knowledge of the construction and operation of gas turbine engines and the associated sub-systems such as lubrication, starting and instrumentation. You will also learn about the engine installation process and ongoing monitoring procedures. You will develop skills in the maintenance of gas turbine engines and their associated sub-systems, gaining hands-on practical experience with different types of procedures, components and systems. This unit is delivered at Aviation Australia campuses by Aviation Australia staff in partnership with CQUniversity staff.

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.
