We are aiming for an incremental return to campus in accordance with guidelines provided by NSW Health and the Australian Government. Until this time, learning activities and assessments will be planned and scheduled for online delivery where possible, and unit-specific details about face-to-face teaching will be provided on Canvas as the opportunities for face-to-face learning become clear.

AMME4010: Major Industrial Project

Students spend 6 months at an industrial placement working on a major engineering project relevant to their engineering stream. This is a 24 credit point unit, which may be undertaken as an alternative to AMME4111/4112 Thesis A & B, and two recommended electives. This unit of study gives students experience in carrying out a major project within an industrial environment, and in preparing and presenting detailed technical reports (both oral and written) on their work. The project is carried out under joint University/industry supervision, with the student essentially being engaged fulltime on the project at the industrial site.

Code AMME4010
Academic unit Aerospace, Mechanical and Mechatronic
Credit points 24
36 credits of at least 3rd year units of study with 65% average
AMME4111 OR AMME4112 OR AMME4121 OR AMME4122 OR ENGG4000 OR MECH4601 or BMET4111 or BMET4112 OR BMET4010

At the completion of this unit, you should be able to:

  • LO1. interpret project results in relation to existing knowledge acquired from prior work in commercial, industrial and academic sectors
  • LO2. undertake a literature review and critically examine published data and findings
  • LO3. orally communicate results of the project to academic and industrial audience
  • LO4. plan, organize, and execute a program of work by setting objectives, methods and timeline to complete the work within the required time frame and specifications
  • LO5. prepare a large professional quality engineering report satisfying academic and industry requirements
  • LO6. apply professional engineering standards, ethics, OH&S and project management practices
  • LO7. recognize the role of engineers in the workplace, the management structure of engineering firms, and their role in society
  • LO8. communicate and work cooperatively with others in the industry
  • LO9. critically analyse results and findings to contribute original insights to the investigation
  • LO10. have developed in depth technical knowledge of engineering processes related to the project.

Unit outlines

Unit outlines will be available 2 weeks before the first day of teaching for 1000-level and 5000-level units, or one week before the first day of teaching for all other units.
