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|
|Students will work on implementing solutions to estimation tasks involving the design of different algorithms and sensor systems.||Design (Level 4)|
|Students will apply estimation and design theory to a number of key problems in aerospace engineering such as global positioning systems, satellite attitude and orbit determination systems and satellite remote sensing and mapping.||Engineering/IT Specialisation (Level 5)|
|Students will develop an expertise in the fundamental principles and applications of estimation methods including the use of linear and non-linear least squares approximations for various engineering tasks.||Maths/Science Methods and Tools (Level 5)|
|Students will be required to conduct their own literature search in studying past solutions to example problems and draw upon this knowledge during their own design process.||Information Seeking (Level 4)|
|The stduents will develop ability to communiate their findings and design via verbal presentation and written reports.||Communication (Level 3)|
|The students will develop ability to critically reflect on professional context issues in undertaking well-defined individual and team responsibilities||Professional Conduct (Level 3)|
|The students will develop project management skills to undertake the defined project activities.||Project and Team Skills (Level 3)|
For explanation of attributes and levels see Engineering & IT Graduate Outcomes Table.
