Term 1 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENEE14005 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

You will work in a team to analyse, design and prepare documentation for assigned projects using commercial software in the area of electrical power and control with a focus on renewable energy. On satisfactory completion students should be able investigate solution options for an engineering problem in the area of electrical power & control, as well as plan and control project work in a team environment, document their professional decision-making processes; research current art of the discipline, check and evaluate validity of information, and prepare professional documentation for a project Distance Education (Flex) students will be required to attend a residential school to promote development of unit learning outcomes.

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. Portfolio 100%

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.

Assessment Title Portfolio
Task Description

Portfolio Details

Assessment of this course is based on submission of a portfolio containing evidence of all the individual work that the student has performed throughout the term. The portfolio should demonstrate how the learning outcomes have been met and to what level, and be presented in the form of a technical report including a table of contents. The portfolio must include all pieces of work produced which the individual claims can demonstrate how they have met the learning objectives of the course. If students wish to include information on team project submissions, these should be referred to, rather than full copies being included in the portfolio providing copies are in the possession of the lecturers at the time of assessment of the portfolio.

Compulsory items

The team project submissions will receive formative feedback only. This formative feedback will not contribute to an individual's final result. However, the projects must be handed in and considered acceptable by the course coordinator for the team members to be eligible to be graded at the end of the term. Project requirements completed satisfactorily and handed in after the due date may be accepted but the final grade may be affected. In addition to the project report, each team must do a presentation in the form of a video recording.

Omission of any of the following items from the portfolio will automatically result in a Fail grade:

1. Group technical report on project : To be submitted as per the schedule

2. Recorded group video presentation : To be submitted together with the report

3. Short 4 page paper suitable for presentation at a professional engineering conference : To be submitted as per the schedule

Individual grade nomination

The individual grade nomination is the grade the student considers should be awarded in accordance with the Assessment Criteria. This must be clearly substantiated with supporting evidence. Students will need to demonstrate how they have met each one of the learning outcomes for the course by referring to evidence in their portfolio. Students should refer to the Assessment Criteria provided in Moodle site when assessing their performance, in particular the course performance standards and grading rubric.

Assessment Due Date Week 12 Friday (02-Jun-2017) 11:30 PM AEST
Portfolio must be submitted by due date. Deatils information will be provided int he course website.
Return Date to Students Exam Week Friday (16-Jun-2017)
Feedback on student portfolio be given by week 14.
Weighting 100%
Assessment Criteria

The portfolio has 100% weight on course final mark. Please refer to task description for the compulsory items to be submitted in the portfolio. Your portfolio will be assessed on the basis of provided evidences against each learning outcome. A detailed portfolio assessment criteria sheet will be available online in the Moodle.

Referencing Style Harvard (author-date)
Submission Online

An electronic copy of the portfolio report must be submitted throgh course website.
