ENEG14005 - Engineering Honours Project Implementation
Term 2 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENEG14005 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

As a student in the final year of your Bachelor of Engineering course, you will work independently to manage and implement a project (planned in ENEG14003) that allows you to demonstrate professional capabilities expected of graduating professional engineers. You will work and learn autonomously, communicate progress and prepare reports and presentations. You will conduct research to support your project decision-making, and you are required to demonstrate critical thinking and document sound analysis and judgement in project working documents and final reporting. You will solve technical problems that arise and evaluate project processes, outcomes and related learning experiences, and you will prepare a formal report, poster and project presentation. Note that if you completed the prerequisite Planning unit more than two terms ago then you need to check with your academic adviser to see if the project is still available.

Assessment Overview

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Presentation 10%
2. Written Assessment 20%
3. Portfolio 60%

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.
