Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.

Pre-requisites and Co-requisites

There are no pre-requisites for this unit.

Course Description

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to monitor engineering structures using surveying methods. The unit covers analysing project specifications and design information to identify components to be measured and monitored, and planning monitoring activities. The unit also covers implementing project management mechanisms, including risk management, and reviewing work outcomes against specifications. It covers setting up and using surveying equipment to measure, record and reduce surveying data using spatial coordinate and reference systems. The unit requires the ability to validate the accuracy of data, and identify and resolve discrepancies and non-conformities between specifications and activities.

The unit supports those who work in a technical management role in a surveying team.

Other Information

Assessment Submission:

Turnitin

Turnitin is an online text-matching service which can be used to support academic integrity and address plagiarism. All submissions via Turnitin within Blackboard include the relevant wording for the e-Submission authorisation process. Students are to use Turnitin. to verify that the work submitted is their

own work and referenced accordingly. This software will be used by all staff to ensures original work by students is checked at submission of the assessment.

e-Submission

The University is obliged to obtain clear student authorisation on all assessable works. RMIT’s e-Submission process provides a valid authorisation equivalent to a signature on a paper coversheet

allowing students to submit assessment works electronically.The e-Submission process requires that specific wording and a link to the assessment declaration is included in your assessment documentation in order to comply with legal and statutory obligations, and

can be used with all RMIT teaching technologies, including;

• Blackboard

• WebLearn

• RMIT’s Google Apps for Education (Gmail, Drive, Sites etc.)

The use of fully electronic submissions saves significant time for both staff and students.

Good practice

• Providing clear advice to students on the e-Submission process as part of their assessment expectations assists in ensuring that it is straightforward for RMIT students to submit work electronically.

• Students can submit non-electronic works via conversion by a digital scanner, i.e. paper-based assessments can be scanned and submitted for assessment via the e-Submission process.

• Establishing a Turnitin assignment in Blackboard is a quick way to provide an e-Submission process for a class group.

Students must submit all assessment task electronically via blackboard as directed by their teacher.

Students are not to email or hand assessment tasks to teachers in class, corridor or cafeteria etc

 

Credit Transfer and/or Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL):

 

You may be eligible for credit towards courses in your program if you have already met the learning/competency outcomes through previous learning and/or industry experience.

Please refer to http://www.rmit.edu.au/disability to find more information about services offered by Disability Liaison Unit.
 

Late Submission:

If you require an Extension of Submittable Work (assignments, reports or project work etc.) for seven calendar days or less (from the original due date) and have valid reasons, you must complete 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. You will be notified within no more than two working days of the date of lodgement as to whether the extension has been granted.
If you seek an Extension of Submittable Work for more than seven calendar days (from the original due date), you must lodge an Application for Special Consideration form under the provisions of the Special Consideration Policy, preferably prior to, but no later than two working days after the official due date.
Submittable Work (assignments, reports or project work etc.) submitted late without approval of an extension will not be accepted or marked.
 

Special Consideration:

Please refer to http://www.rmit.edu.au/students/specialconsideration  to find more information about special consideration.
 

Plagiarism:

Plagiarism is a form of cheating and it is very serious academic offence that may lead to expulsion from the university.
Please refer to http://www.rmit.edu.au/academicintegrity  to find more information about plagiarism.
 

Email Communication:

All email communications will be sent to your RMIT email address and you must regularly check your RMIT emails.
