Program structure

Approach to learning and assessment

This program is primarily delivered in blended mode, which includes a combination of online, self-directed and some face-to-face activities, at the City Campus and is likely to include lectures, tutorials, workshops and labs. 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.
  • Case-based learning engages you in critical thinking and decision making about realistic problems.
  • 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 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:

  • You will be treated as ‘adult learners’: expected to take responsibility for your own learning in a mature and independent way. Your future personal and career prospects will be enhanced by active engagement in learning activities.
  • In-class tests: provide you with timely feedback on your understanding of course content and allow feedback to assist you in further developing your skills and capabilities during the semester
  • 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.
  • Research projects: which assess ability to assimilate, critical analyse and reflect on information as well as written communication skills.
  • Formal presentations: enable the development of verbal communication skills, and organisational abilities.
  • Reflective Journals or papers: where you pause to consider what you have learnt, along with the easy and hard issues associated with that learning.
  • Portfolio – enable you to report and reflect what you have learnt and to keep collection of a range of models, examples, articles and websites that you will take forward as a resource in your professional life.
  • 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 complete will enable your lecturer to provide you with feedback on your learning. This will enable you to improve your performance in the future.

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

Bachelor of Engineering (Electronic and Computer Systems) (Honours)

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 feedback from a WIL partner organisation:

  • OENG1166 Introduction to Professional Engineering Practice where you will participate in an "Engineers Without Borders (EWB)" project which is focused 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

  • OENG1165 Professional Engineering Experience

You can enroll in OENG1165 while you are undertaking engineering work experience at any time during your program as a University elective course or you can enroll in it as a technical option course in year four or five.

Bachelor of Business (Management)

The designated Work Integrated Learning (WIL) courses in this portion of the program are BUSM4546 Management in Practice (12 credit points) and BUSM4177 Leadership and Decision Making (12 credit points). These courses will provide you with opportunities to apply your academic skills to a work-based context.

In particular you will:

  • undertake and be assessed on structured activities that allow you to learn, apply and demonstrate your professional or vocational practice; and
  • be involved in authentic engagement with partner organisations that includes industry feedback. These learning opportunities may be in the form of industry-based projects, simulations or placements.
