AMME4010: Major Industrial Project (2017 - Semester 1)
|Unit:||AMME4010: Major Industrial Project (24 CP)|
|Faculty/School:||School of Aerospace, Mechanical & Mechatronic Engineering|
A/Prof Jabbarzadeh, Ahmad
|Session options:||Semester 1, Semester 2|
|Versions for this Unit:|
|Pre-Requisites:||[36 credits of 3000 level units of study with a credit (>65%) average].|
|Prohibitions:||AMME4111 OR AMME4112 OR AMME4121 OR AMME4122.|
|Brief Handbook Description:||Students spend 6 months at an industrial placement working on a major engineering project relevant to their engineering stream. This is a 24 credit point unit, which may be undertaken as an alternative to AMME4100 Practical Experience, AMME4111/4112 Thesis A & B, MECH4601 Professional Engineering 2 and a recommended elective.
This unit of study gives students experience in carrying out a major project within an industrial environment, and in preparing and presenting detailed technical reports (both oral and written) on their work. The project is carried out under joint University/industry supervision, with the student essentially being engaged fulltime on the project at the industrial site.
|Department Permission||Department permission is required for enrollment in this session.|
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 typically spend a considerable amount of time on design and problem solving||Design (Level 5)|
|Students develop in depth technical expertise on the engineering processes involved with the project||Engineering/IT Specialisation (Level 5)|
|Understanding of engineering fundamentals is reinforced and taken to more advanced level||Maths/Science Methods and Tools (Level 4)|
|Students must research, critically assess, and report on literature related to their project||Information Seeking (Level 4)|
|Students must produce a large professional quality report and give a seminar||Communication (Level 4)|
|Students spend six months working in an engineering role at an industrial site.||Professional Conduct (Level 4)|
|Students work within an engineering team and must organise and schedule tasks project objectives||Project and Team Skills (Level 5)|
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.Design (Level 5)

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.
