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.

Unit of study_

ENGG5203: Quality Engineering and Management

This subject is designed to support Engineers in the implementation of engineering tasks in the workplace. It addresses the use of quality control and management as well as systems assurance processes. It is designed to enable engineers entering practice from other related disciplines or with overseas qualifications to do so in a safe and effective way. The study program will include management of quality in research, design and delivery of engineering works and investigation, as well as of safe work practices and systems assurance.

Code ENGG5203
Academic unit Civil Engineering
Credit points 6
Assumed knowledge:
First degree in Engineering or a related discipline

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

  • LO1. apply quality assurance both in design and construction of engineering projects, including an understanding of both project and product quality. An understanding of quality control as well as principles and application of TQM to both project and manufacturing quality will be developed
  • LO2. apply sound engineering practice to management of Industrial Relations issues, the role of staff associations and user groups in design, certification and operation of engineering works as well as employment contracts and agreements
  • LO3. apply a professional approach to basic engineering contracts including professional services, design and construct, construction management, lump sum and alliance delivery systems. Outcomes will include pre-selection, tender and administration of contracts including application of assurance systems to quality, OH&S and environmental deliverables
  • LO4. apply the occupational health and safety act and awareness of liability and systems assurance, in regards to workplace safety in both the practice of delivery and product safety
  • LO5. communicate findings and recommendations derived from team work and assess the quality of team performance
  • LO6. apply a professional approach to ethical issues related to the engineering profession and the social responsibility of engineers. This outcome will include working in teams, leading teams, ethical behaviours related to intellectual and physical property rights, treatment of individuals in the workplace, understanding and practice of working in culturally diverse workforce, application of conflict of interest and probity principles to engineering projects and dealing with unjust enrichment practices and behaviours. The concepts of community above self and value for effort as well as sustainability of resources will be included.
