Approach to learning and assessment

Classes are taught in a combination of intensive lecture, tutorial, workshop, laboratory sessions (during Residential Visits) and industry visits. You are expected to be responsible for the completion of all out-of-class learning activities that may require extra reading of both library and online materials.

Within each of these two Project courses (OENG1111 and OENG1112), you will be required to participate in a compulsory residential visit to RMIT Melbourne to undertake WIL activities, professional engineering research activities and laboratory practice on campus. Each residential visit is of approximately one week duration. You will be responsible for the cost of your own travel and accommodation, as well as associated costs. On return to Singapore you will be expected to submit a report. 

Assessment is ongoing throughout the trimester, and may include class tests, essays/reports, oral class presentations, group projects, research projects, laboratory projects, assignments and end of trimester examinations. Components of the assessment for each course may be found in their respective Course Guide.

Work integrated learning

RMIT is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with workplace experience. 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
  • complete these activities in real or simulated work contexts or situations. 

In this program, you will be doing specific course(s) that focus on work integrated learning (WIL).  You will be assessed on professional or vocational work in a work place setting (real or simulated) and receive feedback from those involved in your industry. 

Work integrated learning has been incorporated into the following compulsory (core) courses in the final year of the program:

  • OENG1111 Professional Research Project 1
  • OENG1112 Professional Research Project 2

As part of your program you will undertake OENG1111 Professional Research Project Part 1 (24 credit points) in one trimester and OENG1112 Professional Research Project Part 2 (24 credit points) in the subsequent trimester. These projects either are directly connected with industry or simulate the situation of a graduate engineer in industry reporting to a supervisor with whom they meet regularly. In the cases where the project is directly connected with industry the industry partner is usually involved in some components of the assessment.

Work Experience

As part of your program requirements you must undertake at least 12 weeks of work experience in a professional engineering environment. At the conclusion of the 12 weeks:  

  • your industry supervisor must provide a letter describing the period and the engineering work you have been involved in and an assessment of your performance.
  • you must prepare and submit an essay reflecting on your experience.  

Completion of engineering work experience is assessed as part of the course OENG1112 Professional Research Project Part 2 in your final year of studies, which is a WIL-designated course.

You benefit in a number of ways from the various forms of employment experience described above: it helps put your studies in perspective and to clarify the relevance of what you are being taught; it often provides a topic for your final year project, and it frequently opens doors of employment opportunity.

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.
