Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

This course develops integrated technical and professional capabilities for Associate Degree students based on knowledge and skills developed in previous courses and current study. You should have completed at least 96 credit points of courses in the Associate Degree to enrol in this course.


Course Description

This course is undertaken in the final year of the Associate Degree in Engineering Technology (AD026) program. It involves simulated Work Integrated Learning (WIL), during which you will be required to undertake a Capstone project simulating industry-based tasks. To complete the Capstone project, you will be required to develop, manage and achieve the same objectives and outcomes as you would if you were undertaking an engineering project in the work place.

The capstone project will require you to utilise a range of skills to complete the project. You will be expected to demonstrate both your technical and project management skills to achieve a successful project outcome. You will be required to utilise multiple technologies and, apply and demonstrate the knowledge and skills you have developed across all the courses you have undertaken in this program.

You will work on the project in a small team and will be completing most of the works during teacher-guided tutorial classes. You will be provided with regular feedback on your progress by the teaching team and industry partners. Industry involvement in this capstone project will include:

  • the project brief developed in collaboration with industry to ensure authenticity to industry practices.
  • class-wide industry feedback and guidance at a midway point of project development.
  • evaluation of a sample of projects and class-focused feedback on completion.

Peer feedback is a mandatory requirement within the group work settings to ensure that you and your group members are contributing to project. A number of RMIT Micro-Credentials have also been incorporated to enhance your employability skills.

1) Apply critical and creative thinking in the design of engineering projects
2) Plan and manage your time effectively as a team
3) Consider the business context and commercial positioning of designed devices or systems
4) Apply knowledge of the ‘real world’ situations that a professional engineer can encounter
5) Use fundamental knowledge and skills in engineering and apply it effectively on a project
6) Design and develop a functional product prototype while working in a team
7) Undertake an engineering project under mentorship
8) Timely reflect on your own and peers’ technical and non-technical learning

10) Manage any disputes and conflicts within and outside your team.


Overview of Learning Activities

The learning activities will comprise three components:
• Lectures
• Site visits
• self paced learning
• Teamwork/peer learning
• Reflective Journals
