Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

This unit is Part A of a 2 part year-long capstone unit. It integrates the theory, knowledge, and skills learned in the individual units of the course, and it offers students the opportunity to apply them to solve industry standard projects. Through the projects, students will reflect, synthesize and apply the professional and the generic skills learned; in particular, students will reinforce and further develop their independent research skills, team working skills, project management skills, and critical thinking and problem solving skills. Through working on sizable industry standard projects, the unit is aiming at practising the Stage 1 competency standard for professional engineers, stipulated by Engineers Australia. The unit prepares students ready for jobs or further higher degree studies.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Attest a comprehensive understanding of advanced knowledge that underpins network and software engineering;

2. Analyse complex problems and formulate solutions, taking into consideration professional practice, code of ethics and professional standards of the industry;

3. Evaluate the context of engineering projects, such as social and economic constraints, legal and ethical issues, risk and benefit balance, technology availability and stakeholders' acceptance;

4. Analyse information critically and illustrate professional skills, such as teamwork, communication to a variety of audiences, project management, engineering techniques, methods, and processes, including an understanding of the role of professional bodies and societies; and

5. Conduct research, evaluate research methods, and interpret research findings with some independence.
