General Assessment Information
Four workshops (up to 1.5 hrs each) must be completed by every student over the course of enrolment in ENGG4099.
This can be done in the same session, or in different sessions (NB: ENGG4099 will replace ENGG400 from S1 2020).
In this Session, they are scheduled as follows:
- Workshop 1 - Introduction to ENGG4099 and PACE: To be completed online in iLearn on or before Friday (05/03/2021).
- Workshop 2 - Career skills; Ethical Practice; Intellectual Property (IP): To be completed online on or before the Friday (12/03/2021).
- Workshop 3 - Reflective practice: Online in iLearn. Only students who are planning to complete the requirements of ENGG4099 in this session should complete this workshop online before starting to write the final report. Otherwise complete it in a later session.
- Workshop 4 - Report checklist and Unit Overview: Online in iLearn. Only students who are planning to complete the requirements of ENGG4099 in this session should complete this workshop online before starting to write the final report. Otherwise complete it in a later session.
The Duration of your Industry Experience Activity
The total length of the activity should be at least 420 hours (12 weeks full-time equivalent). An Industry Experience activity can be done with the same partner organisation (or additional partner organisations) in several different periods with breaks in between, over 2 years.
Industry Experience Approvals
** Each ENGG400/ENGG4099 Industry Experience activity you undertake MUST BE APPROVED by PACE and the School of Engineering as soon as possible before the session in which the activity starts, and no later than the relevant submission due date (see below).
Local and Regional Activities
The due date for submitting a Winter Vacation Activity (the activity is scheduled to start in WV of 2021) is in May/June 2021 (TBA).
PACE International will not accept proposals for student-nominated activities overseas unless the activity is in student's home country. Proposals for overseas activities involving students returning to their home country will continue to be processed by PACE. All overseas PACE activities that are deemed "Faculty-led" will continue to be supported. Proposals for "Faculty-led" activities are submitted by academics or partners and not by individual students.
There are two main application rounds for international activities: WV and S3. Requests to undertake an international activity outside of these sessions will be assessed on a case by cases basis and approval will depend on available staffing and resources, and a minimum notice of no less than 3 months prior to planned departure.
** Due to FSE PACE and the School of Engineering workload demands, please understand that exceptions cannot be made for late submissions. **
Submission Due Dates do not affect students who:
• Are already doing a PACE approved activity, or
• Have successfully applied to a PACE Partner activity, promoted via PACE Opportunities.
Students who miss a particular submission date can still submit their Student Activity Proposal after the deadline, but the proposal will not be reviewed and processed until after the next deadline. (This includes both unpaid and paid activities).
** Please note that students who start an activity, whether unpaid or paid, without approval from PACE and the School of Engineering:
• May not be insured for the activities they undertake, and
• May not have the activity count towards the learning outcomes of ENGG400/ENGG4099, and
• Will not have their hours retrospectively approved, if they enrolled in ENGG400 in Session 2 2016 or later
• Are strongly advised to negotiate a later start date or reconsider the viability of the activity.
Please do not leave your application until the last minute.
ALL students are required to submit their final report via turn-it-in (in the assessment submission space on iLearn) and
· If the student has an approved local or regional activity (starting prior to S2, 2019) or if they have completed an approved international activity in any semester, they are required to email FSE PACE a copy of the final report, logbooks and certificates to firstname.lastname@example.org and/or
· If the student has an approved local or regional activity (starting from S2 2019 onwards) they are required to email FSE PACE their final report only to email@example.com. FSE PACE will check iParticipate for actioned timesheets and the completed student evaluation.
If you have any questions about the above assessment update, please contact Marios Elles at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 98506842.
Submission links and due dates can also be found in the ENGG4099 iLearn site under the Key Dates section.
Students conducting an industry project for Thesis A and Thesis B may, subject to separate ENGG400/ENG4099 approval, count some of those hours towards ENGG400/ENGG4099. The process is as follows:
- After a project is allocated in the Thesis A unit, the student submits an ENGG400/ENGG4099 Activity Proposal to PACE for either the WV or S3 submission due dates.
- Industry hours completed in the Thesis A unit cannot count towards ENGG400/ENGG4099.
- If the Activity Proposal is approved, industry hours completed in the Thesis B unit (starting in Session 1 or Session 2) and any additional industry hours completed during WV (if Thesis A is taken in Session 1) or S3 session (if Thesis A is taken in Session 2) can be counted towards ENGG400/ENGG4099.
Thesis-A students whose research has been pre-approved for ENGG400/ENGG4099 Industry Experience and are starting Thesis-A in Session 2 2021 are required to submit their ENGG400/ENGG4099 Student Activity Proposal by the upcoming S1 2021 submission due date, TBA. Note that Thesis-A activities are not counted for ENGG400/ENGG4099 and Thesis-B activities often do not have 420 hours required for ENGG400/ENGG4099. Hence, additional industry hours are required and they may be acquired in the WV (Winter Vacation) and S3 Sessions.
If you commenced a placement in S2 2019, or later, please see the ENGG400/ENGG4099 Fact Sheet in iLearn for information on tracking and reporting your activity (only the report, item 3 below, is required to be submitted via iLearn).
For students who commenced their placement prior to S2 2019, upon completion of 420 hours of such approved work-experience internship, the following documents must be submitted electronically, as one PDF document, through iLearn in the appropriate submission space provided in iLearn on or before the last week of semester:
1. Cover page and checklist (provided in iLearn)
2. Log book(s) – template provided in iLearn
3. Report (6-10 pages long, as specified in Unit Guide and should address all points listed in Workshop 4 slides)
4. Certification form(s) - signed by industry partner(s)
Successful completion of this unit requires the submission of the above documents by the deadline. To pass the Unit, the student must complete satisfactorily each of the three Assessment Tasks described below.
A student submitting an incomplete or unsatisfactory submission will be given one (and only one) more opportunity to resubmit revised document(s) before a deadline. If the second submission is also unsatisfactory and/or incomplete, the student may receive a Fail (F) or Continuing (K) grade. Then, no more re-submissions will be allowed in this session; the Student will have to submit documents and pass the unit in a future session.
Late submissions will not be accepted unless there are exceptional circumstances. For example, any students who miss the submission deadline in S1 will have to submit the documents to the WV ENGG4099 iLearn submission space and they will be marked and graded at the end of 2019 WV Session. Students should be aware that this could delay the graduation or completion of the degree requirements. Meeting deadlines is an essential requirement in many industry positions and hence the final submission deadline will be strictly enforced in this unit.
All submissions will be marked at the end of the session, during the exam marking period, and grades will be reported around the time grades are released for the other units in the same session. Requests to mark or grade a submission early will not be entertained unless there are exceptional circumstances.
The student will receive 'S' (Pass - no mark) grade for the unit when the unit requirements are met.
A student who neither completes the requirement for ENGG400/ENGG4099 in the enrolled session nor fails the unit will receive 'K' (enrolment continuing) grade. This allows the student to keep the enrolment active until the requirements for ENGG400/ENGG4099 are met in a future session but within two years. The University may change this time limit in the future.
