CHNG4203: Major Industrial Project (2016 - Semester 1)
|Unit:||CHNG4203: Major Industrial Project (24 CP)|
|Faculty/School:||School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering|
A/Prof White, Don
|Session options:||Semester 1|
|Versions for this Unit:|
|Pre-Requisites:||[144 CP prior study with >65% WAM].|
|Brief Handbook Description:||This unit of study will give students a rich 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 and extends over several months, with the student essentially being engaged fulltime on the project at the industrial site. Previous students have been placed with industries in areas including the mining industry, oil and gas processing, plastic and paint manufacture, food production, manufacturing and so on. Students will learn from this experience the following essential engineering skills : how to examine published and experimental data, set objectives, organise a program of work, and analyse results and evaluate these in relation to existing knowledge. Presentation skills will also be developed, which are highly relevant to many branches of engineering activity.WAM greater than credit average.
|Assumed Knowledge:||Prerequisites: Passed at least 144 credit points. Students wishing to do this unit of study are required to discuss the matter with the Head of School prior to enrolment.|
|Additional Notes:||Enrollment by permission only. The candidate will be selected by interview and at the discretion of the Head of School.|

The following is a list of courses which have added this Unit to their structure.
This unit contributes to the achievement of the following course goals:
|Engineering/IT Specialisation (Level 5)||Yes||50%|
|Communication (Level 4)||Yes||50%|
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.
