Formal notification of assessment tasks, grading rubrics and due dates will be posted on iLearn. Although all reasonable measures to ensure the information is accurate, the University reserves the right to make changes without notice. Each student is responsible for checking iLearn for changes and updates.
A weekly plan of lectures, assignments, tests, laboratory and workshop sessions will be posted on iLearn. Students are expected to be aware of possible minor variations.
Assignment questions will be posted on iLearn. Assignment solutions will be posted within one to three days after the submission date. Submissions will not be accepted once the solution is posted.
All assignments must be submitted electronically through iLearn (in pdf format). Submissions are expected to be typed in a logical layout and sequence. Markers WILL NOT grade poorly organized or illegible scans or drafts. The expected workload includes preparation of final copies and clear diagrams. Resubmissions will be permitted up to due date.
All assignments should be prepared individually. It is expected that students consult tutors, lecturers or other students while learning the concepts, but copying assignments from others is not accepted. Students are expected to have read and understood the academic honesty policy.
Late notices or absences from tests, workshops and laboratories will be considered under extenuating circumstances upon lodgement and approval of a formal notice of disruption of studies.
To obtain a passing grade (P/CR/D/HD) a total mark of 50 more is required AND a mark of 50 or more is required for the final examination. The final exam is a hurdle requirement because it is the only reliable assessment of individual performance for this unit. A passing grade of 50% or more in the final examination is a condition of passing this unit. Students who make a serious attempt but fail to meet the hurdle requirement will be given one further opportunity to pass. A serious attempt is defined as achievement of a mark of 40% or greater.
Practical sessions start in Week 2. They are comprised of laboratory or problem-solving workshop sessions linked to each learning outcome; and they are compulsory for all students. Students are expected to arrive on time and use the laboratory time efficiently. Students should enroll in one practical class at the beginning of the semester. Laboratory or workshop worksheets, required data and other necessary items will be posted on iLearn prior to the weekly sessions and it is compulsory for students to complete the preparatory work before coming to the session.
Practicals will be largely assessed in class but there will some "take-home" assignments for the laboratory sections. More information will be available on iLearn
In laboratory sessions, students learn how to utilise their data visualisation knowledge in processing real-world engineering problems. Students will work on different skills such as advance plotting in MATLAB and Excel, programming in MATLAB, data visualisation and programming in LabVIEW. Students do not need to bring their personal laptop to the laboratory sessions. Computers with the required software (such as MATLAB, Excel, LabVIEW) will be provided.
