Pre-requisites and Co-requisites
Students will develop programming skills required to function in the electronic engineering industry. It will provide skills in algorithm development, programming design methodology and good programming techniques.
This learning unit is one of a group of units designed to collectively meet underpinning skill & applied knowledge essential for developing the following Core Competency –
UTE NES 504bA – Diagnose faults in advanced systems and associated apparatus – Electrical
which is contained in the National Elctrotechnology Training Package UTE99 http://www.anta.gov.au/tp
National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria
National Element Code & Title:
UTENES504BA Diagnose & rectify faults in advanced systems & apparatus
o 504.1 Plan and prepare for diagnosis of faults in advanced systems and associated apparatus.
* Diagnosis of faults is planned and prepared to ensure OH&S policies and procedures are followed and the work is appropriately sequenced in accordance with requirements
Details of Learning Activities
Students will participate face to face in
• Classroom tutorial activities to consolidate the theory of programming development and design concept, which may include demonstration of programming techniques, then devote time to consolidate these concepts.
• Practical activities to develop skill in computer programming and software development concept which include good program flow design, error handling, function design, parameter passing, hardware interfacing concepts, bit manipulation, compiling, linking and debugging process.
• Work simulation projects involving the design and construction computer programs that display sound development techniques and conform to Industrial practice standard. The development of testing procedure to verify the performance specification, diagnosis of faults in the program, debugs the fault and completion of commissioning process. Specifications will be provided with work simulation (team or individual basis) or may be negotiated to suit a workplace based application
Projects may be undertaken as part of a team or individual basis.
It is expected that students would require approximately 20% of course hours to be allocated for independent study to do project research, design, construction, testing and problem solving activities.
Access to computer / Internet resources are essential.
