ENGG4065: Advanced Engineering Design B (2015 - Semester 2)
|Unit:||ENGG4065: Advanced Engineering Design B (6 CP)|
|Faculty/School:||School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering|
A/Prof White, Don
|Session options:||Semester 2|
|Versions for this Unit:|
|Pre-Requisites:||Distinction average WAM and department permission|
|Brief Handbook Description:||The aim to this unit is to develop an understanding of the practice of engineering, utilising a diverse range of skills to solve complex problems.
This Unit is an extension of the ENGG 4064 unit of Study and exists to allow students to extend the work they do in ENGG 4064 and penetrate much more deeply into the subject in hand, so that it becomes much more like a thesis. The nature of these advanced engineering courses meaning the subject matter is negotiated every year.
The project in mind has to be amenable to extension in this way so agreement with the course coordinator needs to be sought at an early stage by anyone considering this Unit.
Students will gain skills in design, analysis and management by undertaking a significant project in a multi-disciplinary team comprising students from across the faculty. Each student will be required to work in a team to produce an integrated design in greater detail than is possible in ordinary classes and to write a significant design report presenting the results of the process. The ability to work in a team of engineers from different disciplines will be assessed as part of this design project.
We try to centre projects around a client, which can be an industrial facility, the Campus and Property Services Office of the University, Research departments within the university, or outside clients (e.g. Nature Conservation Council NSW).
Elements drawn from: Introduction to the design process, Clarification of the Brief, Inquiry, brainstorming, Design philosophy, Design optimization, Equipment design and costing, Hazard assessment, Environmental Impact Assessment, Project financial Analysis, Business planning.
|Additional Notes:||Only students with an AAM of > 75% at the end of Year 3 will be invited to join this interdisciplinary group|
Attributes listed here represent the key course goals (see Course Map tab) designated for this unit. The list below describes how these attributes are developed through practice in the unit. See Learning Outcomes and Assessment tabs for details of how these attributes are assessed.
|Attribute Development Method||Attribute Developed|
|Open ended project based methodology.||Design (Level 4)|
|Project based on current industry requirement directly related to a specific field of Engineering||Engineering/IT Specialisation (Level 4)|
|Projects will be based on the prior engineering knowledge of the student with the aim of extending this knowledge||Maths/Science Methods and Tools (Level 4)|
|Presentations and detailed reports will be required to complete the unit.||Information Seeking (Level 3)|
|Reporting and oral presentation of results to both peers and an external audience||Communication (Level 4)|
|The usual standards for a professional engineer will be applied to any assessment work within the unit||Professional Conduct (Level 4)|
For explanation of attributes and levels see Engineering & IT Graduate Outcomes Table.
Learning outcomes are the key abilities and knowledge that will be assessed in this unit. They are listed according to the course goal supported by each. See Assessment Tab for details how each outcome is assessed.Project and Team Skills (Level 4)

These goals are selected from Engineering & IT Graduate Outcomes Table which defines overall goals for courses where this unit is primarily offered. See Engineering & IT Graduate Outcomes Table for details of the attributes and levels to be developed in the course as a whole. Percentage figures alongside each course goal provide a rough indication of their relative weighting in assessment for this unit. Note that not all goals are necessarily part of assessment. Some may be more about practice activity. See Learning outcomes for details of what is assessed in relation to each goal and Assessment for details of how the outcome is assessed. See Attributes for details of practice provided for each goal.
