Approach to learning and assessment

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

  • You will be offered a learner-centred curriculum that encourages more learner engagement and participation than traditional lecture style delivery thereby providing you with opportunities to communicate in a variety of modes.
  • You will engage in projects that require you to report results qualitatively, quantitatively, graphically, electronically and textually.
  • Assessment in all courses will emphasise a range of written and oral skills.
  • You will undertake learning activities and projects that require you to work in multi-disciplinary teams and critically engage with aspects of team development and conflict resolution.
  • You will engage in learning activities and projects that require you to conceptualise, 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 practice and theory.
  • You will undertake projects that require you to access a wide variety of knowledge repositories including professional journals, discussion lists and online sources of material.
  • You will be required to solve complex, interconnected problems.
  • You will be engaged in projects and authentic tasks that require you to work in multidisciplinary teams on multidisciplinary problems.
  • You will be given problems that require you to consider the business context and commercial positioning of designed devices or systems. 

Assessment

To ensure that you have achieved the required learning outcomes and developed critical capabilities you must be assessed.  Assessment is designed to give you opportunities to demonstrate your capabilities.  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 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 does this, and because of the different types of courses, assessment may be expected to take different forms, such as: 

  • 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: which 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 (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 Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL): http://www.rmit.edu.au/students/enrolment/credit/he.

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 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
  • 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 WIL experience may be simulated.

In this program the Year 1 and Year 2 Research/Project courses provide experiences that meet the requirements of the RMIT Work Integrated Learning (WIL) policy.

In Professional Engineering Project A and B (EEET2346 & EEET2347) you will work in a team on a project under the guidance of a professional engineer (usually an academic "mentor").  The project will require the team to work together to achieve a working product. You will be expected to take more than one role in the team at different times to expand your experience and capabilities.

In Professional Engineering Advanced Project A and B (EEET2349 & EEET2350), or Research Project (EEET2312) you will work on a project that requires you to produce an individual research/project outcome (which may be part of a larger project).  You will work under the guidance of a professional engineer who may be from industry or be an academic or research staff member. You would choose Research Project (EEET2312), or Research Project Parts 1 and 2 (EEET2313 and EEET2314), if you intend to proceed to a  Research degree on completion of this Masters degree (you should have a good academic performance in year 1 of this degree to take this option). If you intend to seek employment in industry on graduation then taking Professional Advanced Engineering Projects 1 and 2 (EEET 2349 and EEET2350)  is the best option.

These courses provide realistic work situations allowing you to learn, apply and demonstrate professional engineering practice.

In some of the core courses such as Protection and High Voltage Engineering (EEET2336) and Renewable Electrical Engineering Systems (EEET2335), talks by guest speakers from the industry as well as site visits to industrial sites such as power plants and substations will be conducted as part of the course delivery. The program supports you for these work related learning experiences.

Program transition plan

Transition Plan 2014

If you commenced the program MC176 Master of Engineering (Electrical Engineering) in 2013 or earlier you may continue on the old program structure and graduate after completing 144 credit points or you may transition into the new 192 credit point program structure. If you want to continue on the old program structure you must complete the degree by 31/12/2016 as the old program (MC176) will be discontinued after that date.  The school will contact you during 2013 to ascertain your preference. If you transition into the new program structure you will need to consult the Program Manager to determine what courses you need to take to graduate. 

Retained Credit

All credit points successfully completed in a prior version of this program will count towards completion of this program.
