Approach to learning and assessment
The following learning and teaching approaches form the basis of your learning experiences. You will :
- be offered a learner-centred curriculum that encourages more active engagement and participation than traditional lecture style delivery.
- engage in projects that require you to effectively communicate their outcomes across all modes (speaking, listening, writing, drawing and presenting) to a range of audiences.
- undertake team learning activities and projects that require you to work in multi-disciplinary teams and critically engage with aspects of team development and conflict resolution.
- engage in learning activities and projects that require you to conceptualise, plan, design, construct and manage solutions to engineering problems.
- focus on practical application of technical skills and you will be assessed on technical competence both in theory and practice.
- undertake projects that require you to access a wide variety of knowledge repositories including professional journals, discussion lists and online resources.
- be required to solve complex, interconnected problems.
- be given problems that require you to consider the business context and commercial positioning of designed devices or systems.
The assessment in each course is designed for you to demonstrate your technical, design, research and communication competence. The forms of assessment will vary with each course, depending on its specific learning 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. 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 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 (except exams) will enable your lecturer to provide you with feedback on your learning. This will enable you to improve your performance in the future.

Work integrated learning
RMIT is committed to providing students with an education that strongly links formal learning with workplace experience. As a student enrolled in an RMIT program you will:
- undertake and be assessed on a structured activity that allows you to learn, apply and demonstrate your professional or vocational practice
- interact with industry and community when undertaking this activity
- complete an activity in a work context or situation that may include teamwork with other students from different disciplines.
- underpin your learning with feedback from interactions and contexts distinctive to workplace experience.
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.
The project courses provide realistic work situations where you may have the opportunity to learn, apply, and demonstrate professional engineering practice.
- In the courses EEET2352 Professional Engineering Project A and EEET2353 Professional Engineering Project B, you will work in a team on projects to produce working products or prototypes, under the guidance of a professional engineer (usually an academic mentor). You will be expected to take more than one role in the team at different times to expand your experience and capabilities.
- In the courses EEET2354 Professional Engineering Advanced Project A and EEET2355 Professional Engineering Advanced Project B you will work individually on projects to produce working products or prototypes under the guidance of a professional engineer who may be from industry or an academic or research staff member. As part of Professional Engineering Advanced Project B you are also required to demonstrate completion of the Engineers Australia requirement for work-experience equivalent to 12 weeks full time.
You may have the opportunity to spend either semester 2 or semester 3 at the Melbourne City Campus.Top of page

Program transition plan
From 2014 two courses change title as listed in the following table. These courses are equivalent for transition purposes only (not necessarily content equivalent). All courses listed are 12 credit points.
|Course code||2013 course title||Course title from 2014 on|
|EEET2362||HDL & High Level Synthesis||Design With Hardware Description Languages|
|EEET2365||Microcomputer Systems Design||Smart Embedded Systems|
All credit points successfully completed in a prior version of this program will count towards completion of this program.Top of page
