Prohibitions: ENGG3062.
Brief Handbook Description: ENGG3111 continues the theme of integrating student’s professional development with practice. This integration is achieved through combining a series of interrelated activities which build on achievements of previous semesters. These learning activities combined to:

1. Develop student’s abilities with respect to innovation, creativity and engineering design through self guided learning and project work.

2. Develop student’s capacity to develop their professional network through undertaking a series of online modules followed by applying what they have learnt at an engineering networking event.

3. Enhance student’s capacity to be independent lifelong learners through reflecting on their learning experience

ENGG3111 builds upon ENGG2111 by expanding the scope of project focus, bringing in broader consideration of government, private sector industry, and society. Student teams focus on the early stages of opportunity identification – exploring and recognising socio-political trends and investment directions that will lead to commercial opportunities for a growing engineering firm. Students identify the skills required to successfully compete in emerging commercial opportunities. Teams produce a plan to capitalise on available funding by aligning their skills to funding objectives and emerging projects. Teams will then produce a funding proposal including consideration of how their proposal meets stakeholder needs. The unit is designed to provide students with the capacity to recognise and analyse industry trends and relate these to the technical and professional skills they will require.

Students will also be required to actively develop their professional network. After completing an online learning component students will be required to plan their attendance at and subsequently attend an engineering networking event. After the event students will be required to reflect on both their plan and their experience.

You are studying to become professional engineers and/or to work in another profession. Your conduct needs to reflect the expectations of the profession. Both academic staff and students are required to treat each other with respect. Conversations and emails containing inappropriate, rude, hostile or inflammatory language and/or false and tenuous accusations will not be tolerated. Any incidences will be regarded as academic misconduct and reported accordingly.
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.

There will only be one lecture in week 1 (consult your timetable). This lecture will outline what students need to undertake during the unit including discussing the assessment deliverables and independent study requirements. It will also scaffold the requirements for the first assessment activity that is due the following week at the start of your first workshop. It is recommended that all students attend this lecture.

Workshops are face-to-face sessions where students will contribute to Tutor facilitated learning activities and discussions, work with their teams to develop their assessment activities and present their work and participate in assessment activities.

E- learning will be required for all assessment activities within the unit.

Students will need to work independently on aspects of their project and professional development, completing a number of activities as part of their self development and on enhancing their knowledge of engineering professional practice.

To pass the unit, students must complete all assignments, participate actively in all workshops, and work through the online content and readings on Canvas. Failure to complete an assessment will result in a maximum unit grade of 45F.

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 consider fundamental scientific principles underpinning their selected engineering opportunity and apply mathematical methods to explore potential impacts for a range of stakeholders. (1) Maths/ Science Methods and Tools (Level 3)
Through the project, students will explore a complex opportunity available to an engineering company and the needs of prospective clients. Students will guided to exercise their judgement through workshops and online resources. (2) Engineering/ IT Specialisation (Level 3)
Students undertake an analysis of an engineering company/department/organisation with respect to a specified opportunity. Though this analysis they will collect relevant data to inform judgements and decisions on how the company/department/organisation should respond. (3) Problem Solving and Inventiveness (Level 3)
Students experience the design process through project work in which they will review existing engineering designs and processes to analyse and respond to a design opportunity, develop requirements and constraints, evaluate, make and justify preliminary design decisions. (4) Design (Level 3)
Students will evaluate risks to an engineering company/department/organisation with respect to ecological and social sustainability, cultural values, economic and financial impacts, ethics and safety. The assessment is designed to require multiple engineering disciplinary perspectives as well as tools and techniques from business and social sciences to produce an interdisciplinary response to an emerging opportunity . The proposal is assessed on its quality, credibility, evidence, reasoning and likelihood of influencing decision making. (5) Interdisciplinary, Inclusiveness, Influence (Level 3)
Through both project and individual work, students are required to demonstrate their ability to source and use resources to undertake research and enquiry through gathering information from a range of sources to effectively analyse and evaluate a prospective engineering opportunity. Students are given ample opportunity to develop effective communication skills through both individual and group work requiring written and oral communication and reporting, as well as participating in workshops, a network event and reflective activity assessments. (6) Communication and Inquiry/ Research (Level 4)
Students work in teams for 50% of the assessable tasks in this unit. This will require students to employ synchronous and asynchronous methods of collaboration, regularly review team performance and deliver a coherent team project that is both informative and influential. Individuals within the team will need to take responsibility for leading different components of the team assignment to produce a quality outcome. The unit learning activities give students exposure and experience in project management, decision making,Influencing others and teamwork. Teamwork skill development is further enhanced through self and peer feedback and review. (7) Project and Team Skills (Level 4)
The focus of the unit is to develop the professional practice skills, judgement and ethical conduct required of engineers. Students are exposed to these through case studies, project work and engaging with external professionals (networking and project), clients and end users (project).
Students are assessed on their critical reasoning and evaluation, cultural and ethical judgement and capacity to influence decision making.

Assessment Description: All assessments tasks are non re-weightable.

1. Students will be required to complete a number of online learning modules before planning participation in and subsequently attending a networking event to achieve specified outcomes

2. Students are required to Present there identified frugal innovation opportunity and provide feedback to their group peers.

3. Buddy pairs are required to identify the networking event they plan to attend

4 & 5. Students will be required to make a presentation and submit a one-page summary reporting their identified frugal innovation opportunity.

The 3rd workshop presentation and one page summary will receive the combined banked mark out of 10 if satisfactory and a permanent mark of -10 if unsatisfactory.

Our objective is to assist you to learn and to use the feedback you receive in the 3rd workshop to improve your proposal. A banked mark means that if your final group mark exceeds the banked mark it will be ignored, and your final project grade will be determined from the deliverables due in the 4th workshop. If your final group project mark is less than your banked mark then the final group project grade will contribute 2/3 and your banked grade 1/3 to your overall group project mark.

Unsatisfactory deliverables in workshop 3

Final group mark = group mark received for 4th workshop deliverables - 10

Satisfactory deliverables in workshop 3 and workshop 3 group mark exceeds workshop 4 group mark

Final group mark = (group mark received for 3rd workshop deliverables)/3 + (group mark received for 4th workshop deliverables)*2/3

Satisfactory deliverables in workshop 3 and workshop 4 group mark exceeds workshop 3 group mark

Final group mark = group mark received for 4th workshop deliverables

There will be no opportunity for late submissions or resubmission of unsatisfactory work.

4 & 5. These workshop preparatory and in-class participant activities will be graded as satisfactory or unsatisfactory. These activities can not be re-weighed. Unsatisfactory submissions/presentations will receive a -10 mark penalty. There will be no opportunity for late submissions or resubmission of unsatisfactory work.

6,7 & 8. Group project - Report & presentation - each group will submit a report and make a presentation to a panel in regard to a project. Students are assessed on quality of the project, evidence of critical evaluation of information. In addition, all group assessments require you to review your performance and that of your team members using SPARKPLUS. Marks will be adjusted based on these reviews. Preliminary results of self and peer reviews of team contribution (in SPARKPLUS) will be released following moderation. This will be followed by a period for appeals before results are finalised. Relative Performance Factors (RPF) will then be applied to adjust individual marks from group marks for group assessment tasks. Students who do not submit their self and peer assessments will forfeit the right to lodge an appeal. The group project is broken down to the following assessment tasks. Written brief 25%, group presentation 15%, individual presentation 15%.

9. The Network event reflective report includes what student`s learned, what worked and did not work and why in regard to their planned achievement and what they would you do differently next time to improve their outcomes.

Late penalties:

1. Written work submitted electronically after 11.59 pm on the due date 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.

4. In general there will be no late submissions allowed for Self and Peer Review of team contribution (SPARKPLUS assessments), class preparation tasks and in-class assessment activities.

To pass this unit, students must complete all assessment tasks. Failure to complete all assessment tasks will result in a maximum final result of 45 FA.

Full details on your assessment tasks and due dates and times are posted on Canvas.
Assessment Feedback: Where appropriate both individual and group feedback will be provided in the tutorial/workshop sessions. In all other cases feedback on assessment activities will be provided approximately 2 weeks after the due date for submissions.

Written feedback for all assessment tasks will be provided on Canvas.

Marks for assessment tasks 7, 8 and 9 will be withheld until the final release of results at the end of semester.

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