Approach to learning and assessment

 The following learning and teaching approaches form the basis of your learning experiences:

  • In classes, including lectures, you will be encouraged to actively participate in activities such as discussions, asking and answering questions, and problem solving exercises.
  • Projects will require you to effectively communicate outcomes across all communication modes (speaking, listening, writing, drawing and presenting) to a range of audiences.
  • You will undertake team learning activities and projects that require you to work in mixed teams and critically engage with aspects of team development and conflict resolution.
  • You will engage in learning activities and projects that require you to identify, plan, design, construct and manage solutions to engineering problems.
  • Learning activities will focus on practical application of technical skills and you will be assessed on technical competence both in theory and practice.
  • Projects will require you to access a variety of knowledge sources including professional journals, discussion lists and online resources.
  • You will be required to solve complex, real-world problems.
  • You will be given problems that require you to consider the business context and market potential of products that you design.

Assessment

Course assessment is designed to enable you to demonstrate your technical, design, research, and communication abilities. The forms of assessment will vary with each course, depending on the specific learning outcomes and capability development objectives.

Assessments may take the following forms:

  • Examinations: an individual form of assessment where you have the opportunity to demonstrate your ability to explain fundamental principles and solve problems.
  • Assignment and Projects: these may be done individually or in groups allowing you to demonstrate your ability to work alone or as a member of a team.
  • Reflective Journals: where you pause to consider what you have learnt, along with the easy and hard issues associated with that learning.
  • Assessed Tutorials: a form of in-class test, which may be done individually or as a team.
  • Laboratory Reports: which provide an exercise in experimentation, report writing and critical analysis of data.
  • Self-Assessment and Peer-Assessment: for assessment activities such as seminars you will assess yourself or your own group, or assess the work of other groups. This is part of equipping you to become more independent in your own learning and assessing your own and others' performance.

Most of the assessment you receive (the exception is exams) will enable your lecturer to provide you with feedback on your strong and weak points.  This will enable you to improve your performance in the future.
To view the Assessment Policy go to: http://www.rmit.edu.au/browse;ID=qwxbqbg739rl1

If you have a long term medical condition, disability and/or other form of disadvantage it may be possible to negotiate to vary aspects of the learning or assessment methods. You can contact the program coordinator or the Disability Liaison Unit if you would like to find out more.

If you have already developed areas of skill and knowledge included in this program (for example, through prior studies or work experience), you can apply for credit once you have enrolled in this program. There is information on the RMIT University website about how to apply for Credit: http://www1.rmit.edu.au/students/enrolment/credit.

In addition to your studies for this program you also have the opportunity of undertaking an Industry Placement for six or twelve months either locally as advertised by local businesses, or internationally through the RMIT International Industry Experience and Research Program (RIIERP) http://www.rmit.edu.au/riierp.

Work integrated learning

RMIT is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with workplace experience.  Work Integrated Learning will be undertaken in many courses in your program. As a student enrolled in this RMIT program you will:

 

undertake and be assessed on structured activities that allow you to learn, apply and  demonstrate your professional or vocational practice;
interact with industry and community when undertaking these activities and receive feedback through assessment tasks; and
complete these activities in real or simulated work contexts or situations.

 

The following two 12 CP core course include WIL activities where 50% or more of the assessment involves assessors from a WIL partner organisation:

  • OENG1166 Introduction to Professional Engineering Practice where you will participate in an "Engineers Without Borders (EWB)" project which is focussed on sustainable development as identified by EWB and community organisations. 
  • OENG1168 Engineering Capstone Project Part B where you will work under the guidance of a professional engineer who may be from industry or be an academic or research staff member. You will apply your technical knowledge, research, design and professional engineering skills to either discipline specific, or cross disciplinary engineering problems, through robust research and established engineering design processes. 

In addition to these courses you are strongly recommended to undertake at least 10 weeks of engineering work experience supervised by a professional engineer. If your work experience meets the requirements it may be assessed concurrently with your work experience as part of courses such as 

  • OENG1065 Professional Engineering Experience. 
  • MIET1106  Industrial Placement Program

You can enrol in OENG1065 while you are undertaking engineering work experience at any time during your program as a University elective course or you can enrol in it as a technical option course in some programs in your final year.

Program Structure

For students who commence their study in this program from 1 January 2016 onwards, please note that some courses listed in this structure will have their course marks count toward your program's weighted average mark. Your weighted average mark will determine the honours level of your award once you have completed the program. If a course counts toward your weighted average mark, that fact will be stated in its course guide. In Enrolment Online, after you completed your course enrolment, you will be notified which of the enrolled courses will count toward the weighted average mark.
