SEP701 Introduction to Engineering Professional Practice, plus satisfactory achievement of at least 6 credentials.
Must be enrolled in S788
Students will on average spend 300 hours over the teaching period undertaking the teaching, learning and assessment activities for this unit.
1 x 1 hour scheduled online consultation session per fortnight
In SEP702, students will be required to utilise their knowledge and experience from the workplace to contribute to and advance trends and practices in their field of engineering. This unit is designed for the student to demonstrate mastery through the design and development of an industry standard training program or by theorising practice through a publication as described in the pathways below.
Teaching Path (i.e. industry training) – Students will demonstrate mastery by developing a training program for an engineering organisation. This will require scholarly work describing the content of the training activity and effectively communicating knowledge and skills to other individuals.
Publication Path – Student will be required to write a paper ready for publication in a journal in the engineering discipline.
In order to judge the holistic vision of the student, there will be a requirement for a presentation to an assessment panel.
These are the Learning Outcomes (ULO) for this Unit
At the completion of this Unit successful students can:
