Pre-requisites and Co-requisites


Course Description

This unit covers applications of Programming concepts and fundamentals to develop the use of software and its terminology, and programming languages used by industry for structured control programming.

It encompasses working safely with problem solving procedures to predictable problems in the use of softwares and programming for controlling external devices

National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

National Element Code & Title:

UEENEED027B Develop structured programs to control external devices


1. Recognise programming and control programming concepts
2. Use control applications of software
3. Apply industrially used program language
4. Develop and troubleshoot structured programs

Performance Criteria:

1. OHS processes and procedures for a given work area are obtained and understood.
1. 1 Prepare to develop structured programs for control sub systems.
1.2 Established OHS risk control measures and procedures in preparation for the work are followed.
1.3 The extent of structure programming to be developed is determined from job performance specifications and in consultations with relevant persons.
1.4 Activities are planned to meet scheduled timelines in consultation with others involved on the work.
1.5 Appropriate development kit and software are selected based on specified requirements and
performance standard.
1.6 Strategies are implemented to ensure programming is carried out efficiently.

2 2.1 OHS risk control measures and procedures for carrying out the work are followed.
2.1 Develop structured programs for control sub systems.
2.2 Knowledge of computer functions and features are applied to developing structure program.
2.3 Correct structure and syntax is applied to developing structure program.
2.4 Key features of the programming language are applied to develop and test solutions.
2.5 Approaches to issues/problems are analysed to provide most effective solutions.
2.6 Quality of work is monitored against personal performance agreement and/or established organizational or professional standards

3 Test and document  structured program for
3.1 Testing procedures are developed to test developed program.
3.2 Problems and bugs in program are rectified to ensure specification the creation of the code is met.
3.3 Intermediate and final work reports are written in accordance with professional standards and
presented to appropriate person or persons.

Learning Outcomes


Details of Learning Activities

Learning Activities Include the following:

Classroom tutorial activities: to consolidate and hence apply the concepts of programming
Practical exercises: to demonstrate the correct programming techniques
Work simulated activities: to understand and apply industrially used programming language
It is expected that students will require approximately 20% of course hours to be allocated for independent study.

Teaching Schedule

The teaching schedule will be the same as EEET6766C.

Please refer to the teaching schedule for EEET6766C as this competency is clustered with EEET6767C.
