Learning Outcomes


 


Details of Learning Activities

Theory and industry-based worked examples on the:
• Analysis and design of one way slab for a Reinforced Concrete Office Building using industry drawings
• Analysis and design of two way slab for a Reinforced Concrete Office Building using industry drawings
• Analysis and design of reinforced concrete beams for shear and deflection for a Reinforced Concrete Office Building using industry drawings
• Analysis and design of short and slender column for a Reinforced Concrete Office Building using industry drawings slabs
• Termination and layout of reinforcement to satisfy Code requirements


Research activities
• Using the Internet research AS 3600 and identify the clauses required for the analysis and design of reinforced concrete beams and slab


Assignments
Assignment tasks involve applications of standards, codes and requirements applicable to analysis and design of flexural concrete members according to Australian standards as close as practicable to real work situations and include real work decisions by the learner

Industry Visits
Students will be involved in industry visits and or engineering industry exhibitions.
Industrial Placement:
Students in the final stage of Advanced Diploma are encouraged to undertake an industrial practice work placement activity, which requires student to undertake tasks related to  structural design domain within industry.
Task may involve activities linked to auto cad, software packages, project management, evaluation and analysis, etc.
Engineering employment requires the capacity to work effectively in teams, to communicate effectively in both oral and writing and to learn effectively. In order to prepare students for employment as graduates they will be provided a quality assured teaching and learning environment which is conductive to the development of adult learning. Adult learning is characterised by the students accepting responsibility for their own learning and actively participating in the learning process as individuals and as contributors to the teams. Adult learning is the hallmark of a professional. The specific responsibilities as adult learners in respect of this subject are:
. to be aware of and to observe the regulations related to plagiarism
. to submit (on time) all work for assessment as required
. to complete all pre-reading and preparatory work prior to the class for which it will be used
. to effectively use the academic staff resources provided (consultation time, tutors, e- mail etc)
. to participate as an effective and honest member of a learning team
. to contribute effectively to a group of peers in a climate of mutual respect and to question each other and the academic staff when uncertain.

Overview of Assessment

Assessment are conducted in both theoretical and practical aspects of the course according to the performance criteria set out in the National Training Package. Students are required to undertake summative assessments that bring together knowledge and skills. To successfully complete this course you will be required to demonstrate competency in each assessment tasks detailed under the Assessment Task Section.

Your assessment for this course will be marked using the following table:

NYC (<50%) Not Yet Competent

CAG (50-59%) Competent - Pass

CC (60-69%) Competent - Credit

CDI (70-79%) Competent - Distinction

CHD (80-100%) Competent - High Distinction


Assessment Tasks

The assessment is conducted in both theoretical and practical aspects of the course according to the performance criteria set in the National Training Package.
Assessment may incorporate a variety of methods including written/oral activities and demonstration of practical skills to the relevant industry standards.
Participants are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment activities to their teacher/assessor.
Feedback will be provided throughout the course. To successfully complete this course you will be required to demonstrate competency in each assessment task detailed under Assessment Tasks section of Course Guide Part B.
This unit will be assessed in the classroom environment using holistic assessment, based on typical workplace activities.

Project (50%)
Project report preparation for assessment will be done covering elements 1, 2,3 and 4.

Final Exam (50%)
Written assessment will be done covering elements 1, 2,3 and 4.

Work performance project and activities on determining the project requirements, establishing a analysis, design and documenting project report.
Project activities will be as close as practicable to real work situations and will require “real work” type decision-making by the student.


Assessment requirements also include:

- attendance and satisfactory completion of prescribed practical exercises ,
- evidence of participation in and satisfactory completion of work simulation projects.
-satisfactory completion of class assignment work
-timely submission and standard presentation for all assessment material / documentation
