Brief Handbook Description: The aim of this unit is to enhance the capacity of students to assess, plan improve and evaluate their learning needs in relation to becoming a professional engineer. This unit will continue the development of both academic and professional skills through relevant and authentic activities and a project. Integrated Engineering 2 (ENGG2111) will use management and projects as a perspective to explore engineering approaches to addressing open-ended problems. The unit requires students to engage in a project that requires a degree of independence, innovation, resilience and resourcefulness as well as to investigate key skills associated with managing projects and relate these to national and global employability skills.

The project raises awareness about the complexity of engineering in that problems may be vague or ambiguous with no clear right or wrong answers, and students are encouraged to explore and critique ideas, use logical problem solving, and reflect on the process and decisions made with the explicit purpose of becoming critical thinkers. There are two main components: projects and professional development. Students learn project management skills which are then applied to a project. The professional development aspect involves students rating themselves and their peers on teamwork skills, including communication and conflict resolution. Achievements throughout the semester are documented for presentation. By the end of the semester students are expected to have a well-developed career concept that aligns with engineering competencies.
Assumed Knowledge: None.

T&L Activities: The teaching component is designed to engage students productively in learning and working with others as well as contribute to the development of independent learning. The learning activities support students being able to achieve the intended learning outcomes of the unit. Students will need to work in a team or independently on a number of activities as part of their self-development and on enhancing their knowledge of engineering professional practice.

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.

Assessment Methods:
# Name Group Weight Due Week Outcomes
1 EOI submission* No 10.00 Week 4 (Friday, 11 pm) 1, 2, 5, 6,
2 Threshold exam* No 25.00 Week 6 3, 4, 8, 9,

5 Project debrief* No 15.00 Week 13 (Friday, 11 pm) 1, 2, 5, 6,
6 SPARKPLUS* No 0.00 Multiple Weeks 1, 2, 3, 6,
Assessment Description: Assessment tasks are:

1. EOI submission – This is an individual assessment task. All expression of interest documents should be submitted online through turnitin on Canvas in Week 4 for both Group A and Group B.

2. Threshold exam – Held in week 6 for both Group A and Group B.

The threshold exam is designed to assess the minimum required level of knowledge and understanding in the unit. This assesses the online learning content presented in the MOOC. Students must achieve at least 75% in the threshold exam to pass the assessment and the unit overall. 75% in the exam equates to 12.5 marks, 100% equals 25 marks. For those students who fail the threshold exam on the first attempt, a supplementary threshold exam will be held in week 10. However, you cannot improve your mark from the first attempt. Students will not be permitted to sit the supplementary unless they attempted and failed the first threshold exam or have approved Special Consideration approval. Students who fail to achieve 75% in either the original or supplementary threshold exam will receive a maximum unit grade of 45FA.

Grade Calculation:

- If result from first attempt ≥ 75%, Threshold exam mark (out of 25) = (%Result from first attempt - 75%) * 0.5 +12.5

- If result from first attempt < 75%, Threshold exam mark (out of 25) = (%Result from second attempt) * 0.167

- If result from second attempt < 75%, Maximum unit grade (out of 100) = 45FA

3. Project pitch - should be submitted in Week 9 for both Group A and Group B.

4. Group project - Full tender submission is due on Week 11 for both Group A and Group B. Each group needs to submit just one full tender through turnitin on Canvas.

Students will also conduct self and peer review of their group performance using SPARKPLUS. Marks will be adjusted based on these reviews. If a student does not submit their SPARKPLUS assessment, their performance factors will be calculated using the ratings submitted by their peers. Students who do not submit complete ratings and feedback will forgo the right to appeal. If all team members fail to submit their ratings a 20% deduction of the total available marks will be applied.

5. Project debrief - consists of a written report that evaluates your own and your team’s performance in the group project with reference to the PPIR framework. Project debrief is due on Week 13 for both Group A and Group B.

- Full details on your assessment tasks and due dates are posted on Canvas.

- All assessment tasks are compulsory and should be submitted by due date. Students who do not complete all the tasks (individual/group tasks) will receive a FINAL maximum grade of 45FA.

- Penalties will apply to late submissions for assessments and projects:

1. Written work submitted electronically after the due date/time will be considered to have been submitted late.

2. For every calendar day up to and including ten calendar days after the due date, a penalty of 5% of the maximum awardable marks will be applied to late work. The penalty will be calculated by first marking the work, and then subtracting 5% of the maximum awardable mark for each calendar day after the due date.

3. For work submitted more than ten calendar days after the due date a mark of zero will be awarded.

- In general, there will be no late submissions allowed for SPARKPLUS assessments (self and peer review of team contribution).

- The University has authorised and mandated the use of text-based similarity detecting software Turnitin for all text-based written assignments.

* all assessments tasks are non reweightable.
Assessment Feedback: Students are encouraged to use feedback on assessments to improve subsequent assessment tasks.
Grading:
Grade Type Description
Standards Based Assessment Final grades in this unit are awarded at levels of HD for High Distinction, DI (previously D) for Distinction, CR for Credit, PS (previously P) for Pass and FA (previously F) for Fail as defined by University of Sydney Assessment Policy. Details of the Assessment Policy are available on the Policies website at http://sydney.edu.au/policies . Standards for grades in individual assessment tasks and the summative method for obtaining a final mark in the unit will be set out in a marking guide supplied by the unit coordinator.
Policies & Procedures: http://sydney.edu.au/engineering/student-policies/index.shtml
Online Course Content: Students will be invited to enrol in a 4 week Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) on project management. The MOOC will introduce students to project management, planning, monitoring and control techniques. Learning outcomes and tutorial material will provide scaffolding to assist and guide students to engage with and learn from opportunities associated with the unit.
Note on Resources: Students are encouraged to find appropriate career-related and self development courses provided by the University. They are also encouraged to find suitable resources that support their learning goals.
