Site(s) for this Unit:
Campus: Camperdown/Darlington
Pre-Requisites: ENGP2000 AND [72cp of ENGI units of study]. Students must enrol in ENGP3000 in the semester immediately following completion of ENGP2000 and once they have completed at least 72cp of engineering units of study.
Prohibitions: ENGG4000 OR ENGG5217.
Brief Handbook Description: The BEHonours degree (and all associated combined degrees) requires all students to develop a deep understanding of the professional and social contexts in which their engineering knowledge can be applied, and how this context shapes the application of their knowledge. This involves a strong engagement with the practice of their profession and ensuring that they are responsive to the needs and context of industry and community. This engagement is met through the completion of the PEP – Professional Engagement Program – a degree-long integrated program of professional development activities that involves students in contextualising their learning, progressively taking greater responsibility for their own development, and building the foundations of a strong professional engineering career.

Once students have completed the requirements of the third stage of the Professional Engagement Program they will pass PEP3.
Assumed Knowledge: None.

T&L Activities: ENGP3000 consists of the following compulsory components:

1. Workshops (online pre-work + 2 hour class duration each):

1.1 Planning Workshop - to be completed in the FIRST semester that you are enrolled in ENGP3000.

1.2 Review Workshop - you must complete one in EACH semester that you are enrolled in ENGP3000 including the first and last semester.

1.3 Assessment Workshop - you must complete one in your FINAL semester of ENGP3000, once you have met the activity requirements.

Each workshop has some compulsory online pre-work to be completed in Canvas. You will not be permitted to attend the workshop class if you have not satisfactorily completed the online pre-work.

2. PEP Activities - You are required to undertake a minimum of 240 hours of PEP activities, including a minimum of 20 hours of engineering-focused activities and a minimum of 20 hours of non-engineering focused activities and a minimum of 200 hours of Engineering Work. To pass ENGP3000, you need to have accumulated at least 600 hours of PEP activities over the entire program, including a minimum of 70 hours in total of non-engineering focused activities, and 200 hours in total of engineering focused activities. Details about what constitutes acceptable PEP activities were explained in previous units of study in the professional engagement program and are also in the Canvas FEIT student portal in the PEP section.

3. Online claims for PEP Activities - Each PEP activity must be recorded online by a PEP activity claim that follows a required format. Details about these claims were explained in previous units of study in the professional engagement program. PEP activities will only count towards the required minimum totals if the online claims are accepted.

4. Online Peer Assessments of PEP Activity claims - You are required to peer assess the claims of other students. Details about this process were explained in previous units of study within the professional engagement program.

Note: Penalty PEP hours may be added to your minimum requirements in the following cases:

* if you do not complete your online pre-work before coming to a workshop class

* if you submit pre-work that is not of a satisfactory standard

* if any of your peer assessments of PEP activity claims are not of a satisfactory standard

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.

Unassigned Outcomes
1. Use of electronic portfolio for the reporting and self-assessment.
2. Ability to write clear, concise, and well organised self reflections and reports.
3. Ability to reflect on the development of personal skills and approach in engineering.
4. Understanding of the role of engineers in society.
5. Appreciation of engineering ethics.
6. Supervised work in an industry team environment
7. Ability to relate knowledge developed during previous study to a professional engineering environment.
Assessment Methods: Note that assessment weightings below indicate relative proportions of required time and effort only, not the value of marks received. Grading in this unit is criterion-based which means that all assessment criteria must be met in order to pass the unit. All assessment items must be successfully completed.
# Name Group Weight Due Week Outcomes
1 Professional Engagement Portfolio No 100.00 Multiple Weeks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7,
Assessment Description: The Professional Engagement Portfolio consists of the following components:

1. Pre-work for each workshop class - completed online in Canvas and submitted online

2. In-class activity - completed during workshop classes and submitted online in Canvas

3. Online PEP activity claims - lodged in SONIA and peer-assessed by other students and/or staff

Detailed assessment criteria are provided in Canvas for each component.
Assessment Feedback: Feedback is provided in a variety of forms:
* online mastery quizzes form part of workshop pre-work - a passing mark of 75% indicates mastery of fundamental concepts
* during workshops - reflections, PEP activity claims and competency claims are peer assessed during workshops. Tutors are also available during workshops to assist with feedback
* during optional drop-in PEP consultation sessions
Grade Type Description
Criteria Based Assessment This unit as a whole is assessed on a Pass/Fail basis. Final grades are awarded at levels of SR for Satisfied Requirements or FA for Fail (replacing previous grades of R and F) as defined by Academic Board Resolutions: Assessment and Examination of Coursework. Details of Academic Board Resolutions are available on the University`s Policy website at . Criteria for grades on individual assessment tasks and on the requirements for successful completion of this unit will be supplied by the coordinator at start of semester.
