ENEC12009 - Engineering Surveying
Term 1 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENEC12009 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 introduces you to engineering surveying techniques and practical skills. It outlines the practice in plane and geodetic surveying such as measurements of distances, elevations and angles. You are also expected to demonstrate an understanding of surveying methods which include triangulation, traversing and transfer of true meridian to an underground base. Concepts are also introduced in relation to automated survey instruments, errors and survey adjustments, and computerised processing of survey data. You will also need to demonstrate teamwork and communication skills necessary to implement such systems in the civil construction and mining industries. Students enrolled in distance mode are required to attend a compulsory Residential School.

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. Written Assessment 30%
2. Written Assessment 30%
3. Practical Assessment 40%

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.

On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Recognise and discuss basic concepts and principles of Engineering Surveying
  2. Carry out basic surveying and mapping activities such as measurement of ground elevation, angle and distance measurements and detailed surveying using appropriate surveying equipment
  3. Select and apply appropriate computing techniques to analyse and process surveying field measurement data
  4. Apply surveying principles in civil and mining engineering works such as setting-out, earth work calculations and underground surveying
  5. Explain and demonstrate the concepts, techniques and technologies used in mass surveying
  6. Demonstrate a professional level of communication and teamwork

All the learning outcomes are linked and comply with the Engineers Australia's Stage 1 Competency Standard.

3 Practical Assessment

Assessment Title Surveying Practicals
Task Description

Practical Report are required for field surveying activities. Details of activities and report requirements will be given on the unit website.

Please note that you may able complete the practical and most of the report tasks during your practical class (or residential school) time, which will conclude by end of week 6. For the administrative purpose the due date is set as last day of the term. This does not mean you need to wait until that date. Therefore, extension will not be considered unless in a very extreme circumstance (as you have almost 6 weeks after the completion of the practicals).
