Assessment task 1 will be a set of practical exercises based on MATLAB. All these exercises need to be completed by week 10. The practical exercises are accumulative ones and will be graded on submission of all laboratory reports. These practical exercises will be available on learning hub and student’s local drive.

Laboratory exercise-1: 5%

Laboratory exercise-2: 5%

Laboratory exercise-3: 5%

Laboratory exercise-4: 7.5%

Laboratory exercise-5: 7.5%



Assessment task 2: 30%

Assessment task 2 will be a set of practical exercises based on AUTOCAD. All these exercises need to be completed by week 16. The practical exercises are accumulative ones and will be graded on submission of all laboratory reports. These practical exercises will be available on learning hub and student’s local drive.

Laboratory exercise- 6:  7%

Laboratory exercise- 7:  7%

Laboratory exercise- 8:  8% 

Laboratory exercise- 9:  8%

Assessment task 3 : 40%
A practical test will be held on week 17 based on all the learning aspects (AUTOCAD and MATLAB) of these competencies.


Note: There will be penalty for late submissions.

This course is graded using the following course grades:
80 - 100:   CHD - Competent with High Distinction
70 - 79:     CDI - Competent with Distinction
60 - 69:     CC - Competent with Credit
50 - 59:     CAG - Competency Achieved - Graded
  0 - 49:     NYC - Not Yet Competent

Other Information

This course is delivered in a cluster (AutoCAD) in conjunction with " SYS5662C Use engineering application software" and  OFFC5195C "Use basic computer applicaitons relevant to a workplace". All the learning and assessment activities will include the components of both competencies UEENEED004B and UEENEED001B.

In this cluster, minimum student directed hours are  24 in addition to 36 scheduled teaching hours.
Student directed hours involve completing activities such as reading online resources, assignments, project work, individual student-teacher course-related consultation, and writing lab reports.

Study and learning Support:

Study and Learning Centre (SLC) provides free learning and academic development advice to all RMIT students.

Late submission:

Students requiring extensions for 7 calendar days or less (from the original due date) must complete and lodge an Application
for Extension of Submittable Work (7 Calendar Days or less) form and lodge it with the Senior Educator/ Program Manager.
The application must be lodged no later than one working day before the official due date. The student will be notified within
no more than 2 working days of the date of lodgment as to whether the extension has been granted.

Students seeking an extension of more than 7 calendar days (from the original due date) must lodge an Application for Special
Consideration form under the provisions of the Special Consideration Policy, preferably prior to, but no later than 2 working days
after the official due date.

Assignments submitted late without approval of an extension will not be accepted or marked.
