EDSE13002 - Industrial Skills
Term 1 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for EDSE13002 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student). The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction included in the profile.

Overview

This unit investigates the nature and functions of available resources, through the application of inquiry, design and problem-solving methodologies for a range of industrial skills. It requires the student to identify and understand a problem or need, select appropriate resources and strategies that may solve the problem, then implement a plan and evaluate the outcome. While participating, students are exposed to a range of intellectual challenges which develop practical skills associated with welding and thermal cutting, safety equipment and safety to current Australian Standards. Welding and Thermal Cutting form the basis of the range of Industrial skills developed over the duration of the unit and involves the design of engineered artefacts, where safety is paramount. Through practical workshops and associated theory, students will apply the knowledge and skills of industrial skills necessary to teach Industrial Technology and Design in the senior years of schooling.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Assessment Overview

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Practical Assessment 50%
2. Portfolio 50%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Procedures for more details of interim results and final grades.
