For the purposes of considering request for Reasonable Adjustments under the Disability Standards for Education (Cwth 2005), and Student Support and Engagement Policy, academic requirements for this subject are articulated in the Subject Overview, Learning Outcomes, Assessment and Generic Skills sections of this entry.
It is University policy to take all reasonable steps to minimise the impact of disability upon academic study, and reasonable adjustments will be made to enhance a student's participation in the University's programs. Students who feel their disability may impact on meeting the requirements of this subject are encouraged to discuss this matter with a Faculty Student Adviser and Student Equity and Disability Support: http://services.unimelb.edu.au/disability
This subject provides students with the opportunity to integrate technical knowledge and generic skills gained in earlier years. This is to be achieved within the context of an engineering project conducted in a small team (typically two or three students) under the supervision of either a member of academic staff and where appropriate an industry partner. The project component of this subject is supplemented by a lecture course dealing with project management tools and practices, organisational structures, engineering standards and the social and environmental responsibility of professional engineers.
Topics include: Technical report writing, engineering design planning and conducting experiments and test, data acquisition and analysis, public speaking, project presentation skills.
This subject has been integrated with the Skills Towards Employment Program (STEP) and contains activities that can assist in the completion of the Engineering Practice Hurdle (EPH).
Note: Enrolment in ELEN90070 Electrical Engineering Capstone Project A is subject to approval from the subject coordinator. ELEN90070 Electrical Engineering Capstone Project A is of year-long duration, students commence this subject in Semester 2 and continue in the consecutive semester (Semester 1 in the following year). Upon successful completion of this project, students will receive 25 points credit.Students wishing to undertake this subject, should also complete the lecture component of the subject in Semester 1 in the following year.
INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (ILO)
Having completed this subject it is expected that the student be able to:
Individual continuous assessment of the lecture component of the subject, comprising submitted work not exceeding 25 pages over the semester, worth 25%;Individual oral assessment of project outcomes towards the end of semester one, of duration at most 15 minutes per student, worth 10%. A group oral presentation of the project outcomes towards the end of semester 1, of duration at most 30 minutes, worth 10%; A group preliminary report not exceeding the sum of 10 pages per student plus 20 pages(excluding appendices), due two weeks before the oral presentation, worth 5%. A final group report not exceeding the sum of 15 pages per student plus 30 pages (excluding appendices) due in the end-of-semester 1 at the beginning of examination period, worth 50%. In order to pass the subject the students must receive a mark of at least 37.5 out of 75 for the components related to the project (i.e. the individual oral assessment, the group oral presentation, the preliminary report and the final report).
Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs) 1, 2, and 3 are assessed in all assessment components. ILO 4 and 5 are primarily assessed in the continuous assessment of the project management component of the course.
