ENTG13001 - Engineering Technology Project Implementation

General Information

Unit Synopsis

As a student in the final year of your Bachelor of Engineering Technology course, you will work independently to manage and implement a project (planned in ENTG13002) that allows you to demonstrate professional capabilities expected of graduating engineering technologists. You will work and learn autonomously, communicate progress and prepare reports and presentations. You will conduct research to support your project decision-making, and you are required to demonstrate critical thinking and document sound analysis and judgement in project working documents and final reporting. You will solve technical problems that arise and evaluate project processes, outcomes and related learning experiences, and you will prepare a formal report, poster and project presentation. Note that if you completed the prerequisite Planning unit more than two terms ago then you need to check with your academic adviser to see if the project is still available.

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. Presentation 10%
2. Written Assessment 10%
3. Written Assessment 10%
4. Presentation 10%
5. Thesis/Dissertation 60%

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%).

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.

Source: Self-reflection and student feedback
Feedback
Students can feel a little lost as they work on their projects, especially if things start to not go to plan.
Recommendation
Students will be encouraged to make contact with the unit coordinator and/or academic adviser earlier to help resolve any issues.
Action Taken
Students are asked to submit fortnightly progress reports as a means to maintain contact with their academic adviser.
Source: Unit coordinator reflection
Feedback
Some students and projects are not progressing as expected.
Recommendation
Students need to identify project changes earlier so they can still complete on time.
Action Taken
Nil.
Source: Unit coordinator reflection
Feedback
Adjustment of GECon into week 12 of term has impacted the assessment items and associated due dates.
Recommendation
Assessments and weightings will be updated for 2019 offerings.
Action Taken

Unit learning Outcomes

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

  1. Apply and reflect on Engineers Australia's Stage One Competencies for Engineering Technologists to the planning and implementation phases of engineering projects
  2. Implement the project plan prepared in the Planning unit in consultation with and guidance from your project advisor(s)
  3. Think critically, demonstrate sound analysis and make rational judgements and decisions in the implementation phases of your project
  4. Communicate preliminary results to project advisor(s) promptly to solicit timely and constructive feedback
  5. Prepare professional project documents that convey the processes and outcomes of your project
  6. Communicate your project outcomes to project advisor(s), other stakeholders and the wider community.

By completing this unit and the preceding Planning unit each student will meet Engineers' Australia's Stage One Competencies for Engineering Technologists to a substantial degree.
