Approach to learning and assessment
The program has been designed to broaden your thinking by enabling you to have maximum interaction opportunity with your lecturers as well as your fellow classmates. Your learning experiences will contain a broad mix of study modes, including lectures, presentation seminars, tutorials and written assignments. Lectures and tutorials are typically delivered in the evenings throughout each semester with occasional weekend workshops. Active engagement in class discussions is strongly encouraged, along with small-group based activities. Outside of class times you will be able to communicate with the lecturer on-line, and receive learning materials from RMIT’s learning management system.
Assessment is designed to give you opportunities to demonstrate your capabilities. Assessment is primarily based upon written assignments which test the knowledge and application of key issues e.g. problem definition, risk mitigation, human resource management issues, continuous improvement issues, management of technological innovation and change management. The assignments and coursework are done either individually or in teams, depending on the nature of particular assignments. You will find that the forms of assessment used may be different for each course, as the assessment you receive must be appropriate to the objectives of each course.
The assessment you receive is critical to the success of your Masters degree program, and to your future success in the workplace. The Graduate Capabilities designed into your program (a pre-requisite for your success) are satisfied only if the Learning Outcomes specified for each course are known to have been satisfied.
Assessment in this program may include:
- Examinations: an individual form of assessment where you are asked to demonstrate your ability to explain principles and to solve problems;
- Assignments and projects: these may be done individually or in groups. This method may also enable 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 reflecting on the development associated with that learning;
- Assessed tutorials or presentations: a form of in-class test, which may be done individually or as a team:
- Self-assessment and peer-assessment: for assessment activities such as seminars you may be asked to 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.
- Submission of a final minor thesis.
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 Disability Liaison Unit if you would like to find out more.

Work integrated learning
RMIT University is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with professional or vocational practice. As a student enrolled in this RMIT University 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;
- complete these activities in real work contexts or situations; and in addition
- these interactions and the work context provide a distinctive source of feedback to you to assist your learning.
Any or all of these aspects of a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) experience may be simulated.
In MANU1381 Sustainable Engineering Systems and Environment you will participate in group or individual projects and solve realistic industry problems using various problem-solving techniques from sustainable engineering practice. You will be working in a team, analysing real business problems and developing solutions. You will gain feedback from industry practitioners.Top of page

Program transition plan
In 2016 this program underwent a minor amendment. The major changes are:
- the elective list was revised
- the core course MANU2172 System Engineering Principles was added in Year 1
- the course MANU2117 Integrated Logistics Support Management was changed from an elective to a core course in Year 1
- the core course MANU2123 Project Management was removed
(i) The amended structure will be implemented from Semester 1 2016 for all students.
(ii) For students who enrolled in the program before 2016, all credits you gained will count towards the amended program.
The following is the enrolment information for each year level:
Year 1 – As per new structure
The following Table advises students who have failed an old course as to the substitute course they should complete.
|Course(s) no longer offered||Substitute course(s)|
|MANU2123||Project Management||12||MANU2172||System Engineering Principles||12|
If you need any transitional or enrolment advice, please contact your Program Manager.
