Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.
Pre-requisites and Co-requisites
EDC130B Apply Basic Survey Methods to Engineering Applications
EDC140B Apply Advanced Survey Methods to Engineering Applications
This unit of competency deals with the skills and knowledge required to reduce measurements, perform error analysis and compute values required for civil/structural engineering projects.

EDC150B Apply survey computation methods
1. Prepare to carry out survey computations
1.1 Relevant survey data is collected in the field or obtained from survey personnel and organised and analysed in preparation for processing.
2. Carry out survey computations
2.1 Field readings (linear, angular and height) are reduced accurately to values required for further processing.
3. Present results of survey computations
3.1 Results are tabulated in a suitable format for further end users.

Overview of Assessment
Assessment are conducted in both theoretical and practical aspects of the course according to the performance criteria set out in the National Training Package. Students are required to undertake summative assessments that bring together knowledge and skills. To successfully complete this course you will be required to demonstrate competency in each assessment tasks detailed under the Assessment Task Section.
Your assessment for this course will be marked using the following table:
NYC (<50%) Not Yet Competent
CAG (50-59%) Competent - Pass
CC (60-69%) Competent - Credit
CDI (70-79%) Competent - Distinction
CHD (80-100%) Competent - High Distinction
Test 1: 50%
Test 2: 50%
|Assessment Tasks||Performance criteria/Elements||Total weighting|
- Student directed hours involve completing activities such as reading online resources, project work, individual student-teacher course related consultation. Students are required to self-study the learning materials and complete the assigned out of class activities for the scheduled non-teaching hours. The estimated time is 12 hours outside the class time.
Study and learning Support:
Study and Learning Centre (SLC) provides free learning and academic development advice to all RMIT students.
Services offered by SLC to support numeracy and literacy skills of the students are:
- Assignment writing, thesis writing and study skills advice
- Maths and science developmental support and advice
- English language development
Please refer http://www.rmit.edu.au/studyandlearningcentre to find more information about Study and Learning Support.
Disability Liaison Unit:
Students with disability or long-term medical condition should contact Disability Liaison Unit to seek advice and support to complete their studies.
Please refer http://www.rmit.edu.au/disability to find more information about services offered by Disability Liaison Unit.
Students requiring extensions for 7 calendar days or less (from the original due date) must complete and lodge an Application for Extension of Submittable Work (7 Calendar Days or less) form and lodge it with the Senior Educator/ Program Manager.
The application must be lodged no later than one working day before the official due date. The student will be notified within no more than 2 working days of the date of lodgment as to whether the extension has been granted.
Students seeking an extension of more than 7 calendar days (from the original due date) must lodge an Application for Special Consideration form under the provisions of the Special Consideration Policy, preferably prior to, but no later than 2 working days after the official due date.
Assignments submitted late without approval of an extension will not be accepted or marked.
Please refer http://www.rmit.edu.au/students/special to find more information about special consideration.
Plagiarism is a form of cheating and it is very serious academic offence that may lead to expulsion from the University.
Please refer: www.rmit.edu.au/academicintegrity to find more information about plagiarism.
All communication will be sent to your RMIT email address or/and through blackboard announcements that you must regularly check.
