ENTM12006 - Industrial Fluid Power
Term 1 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENTM12006 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

Students develop a working knowledge of the principles and applications of fluid power in industry. They use technical fluid power terminology and representations and select and size fluid power system components, design pressure controls and circuit protection, and recommend and draw simple circuit designs. They outline measures taken to maintain circuit sustainability; develop skills to work, learn and communicate professionally, to investigate and solve problems, and clearly communicate their designs and problem solutions and their rationale for solving problems. Distance education (FLEX) students are required to have access to a computer and to make frequent use of the Internet

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 40%
3. Written Assessment 30%
4. Written Assessment Pass/Fail

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.

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback Source Recommendation
Students welcomed the Monday submission deadlines over the Friday 5 pm deadlines for the assignments. Moodle - Feedback The welcomed amendment of allocating the extra weekend (Monday submission deadline over the Friday) to complete the assessment will continue where possible.
Students indicated that the course was fairly straightforward and offers opportunities for developing skills in system design. Moodle - Feedback The practice of providing students with support and industry relevant design skills will continue in the future offering.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Explain the nature and principles of 'fluid power' and fluid power systems and describe the behaviour of common working fluids in such systems [1,2,3,4,5]

4 Written Assessment

Assessment Title Workbook
Task Description

The Workbook provides a record or detailed diary of each individual student’s study and learning activities throughout the course and should include all individual work carried out. Preparation of a Workbook should be understood as good study technique. It also provides evidence that students have adequately studied the whole course and achieved course learning outcomes. Each entry should be dated, pages should be numbered and show your name or initials. It should be prepared week by week, not at the end of term. Show rough attempts at problems including failures and fixes, brainstorming, draft notes and developing ideas. In the Workbook students should record:

  • study notes taken while studying textbooks and course resources
  • study notes taken during lectures and/or workshops
  • personal study summaries of key concepts
  • notes, sketches/ drawings or mind-maps
  • planning and preparation for team/project tasks
  • planning and preparation for online course discussions
  • workbook practice tasks you are asked to complete in the Course Website
  • initial attempts at set tutorial tasks
  • initial attempts at assignment tasks
  • preparation for class tests or exams.
Assessment Due Date Exam Week Monday (12-Jun-2017) 05:00 PM AEST
Return Date to Students It is expected that assignment will be returned in 2 weeks from the date of submission.
Weighting Pass/Fail
Assessment Criteria

Workbook questions will be set for each topic and will be available on the Course Website. If students have difficulty with Workbook questions, they should seek assistance. All questions must be successfully completed in the workbook and responses must show sufficient working and explanation to allow step-by-step checking by the marker. At least 50% of the questions must be completed to achieve a passing grade. A question will be deemed to have been completed if the student has shown correct procedure and sound understanding of the work. All calculations should be justified with reference to the text or relevant Standards and Codes.

Conditions Minimum mark or grade - To pass this course you must submit all assessment items and obtain an overall grade of at least 50% in each assessment item.
