ELE3916 Software Engineering Team Practice
|Semester 2, 2013 External Toowoomba|
|Faculty or Section :||Faculty of Engineering & Surveying|
|School or Department :||Electrical, Electronic & Computing|
|Version produced :||20 June 2013|
Examiner: Hong Zhou
Moderator: Wei Xiang
Recommended prior or concurrent study: CSC1401
This is the final practice course for Bachelor of Engineering students majoring in Software Engineering and for Bachelor of Engineering Technology students majoring in Computer Systems Engineering. Day students will complete this laboratory work in conjunction with the courses listed above as Day co-requisites. In the case of external students this laboratory work will be performed during a one week residential school, during year 6 of their program. For Bachelor of Engineering students, the course may be undertaken in year 7 immediately adjacent to ENG3902 Professional Practice 1, so that both may be completed over a two week period. This course provides experimental work and project work in the area of computer networking. The principle objectives are to allow the student to develop knowledge of techniques, apply theory and interact with phenomena in real situations, and further develop problem identification and solution skills together with a capacity for self learning. A significant proportion of the course is devoted to group based project work.
The course objectives define the student learning outcomes for a course. On completion of this course, students should be able to:
- apply knowledge of computer networking and software engineering in real situations;
- demonstrate problem identification and solution skills;
- demonstrate a high level of skill in observation, interpretation, analysis and communication;
- demonstrate an ability to work as part of a team;
- present a design seminar for a nominated software project.

Important assessment information
This course requires attendance at a residential school It is the students' responsibility to attend and participate appropriately in all activities (such as lectures, tutorials, laboratories and practical work) scheduled for them, and to study all material provided to them or required to be accessed by them to maximise their chance of meeting the objectives of the course and to be informed of course-related activities and administration. Students must attend and complete the requirements of the Workplace Health and Safety training program for this course before they are able to undertake any practical work in the electrical laboratories.
Requirements for students to complete each assessment item satisfactorily:
To satisfactorily complete an individual assessment item a student must achieve at least 50% of the marks or a grade of at least C-. (Depending upon the requirements in Statement 4 below, students may not have to satisfactorily complete each assessment item to receive a passing grade in this course.)
Penalties for late submission of required work:
Practical reports submitted after the due date will not be assessed.
Requirements for student to be awarded a passing grade in the course:
To be assured of receiving a passing grade students must satisfactorily complete (as defined in Statement 2) at least 80% of the practical and other activities.
Method used to combine assessment results to attain final grade:
As P is the only passing grade available for this course, all students who are qualified for a passing grade, under the requirements in 4 above, will be given a grade of P. Other students will be given either a Failing grade or an Incomplete grade.
There is no examination in this course.
Examination period when Deferred/Supplementary examinations will be held:
University Student Policies:
Students should read the USQ policies: Definitions, Assessment and Student Academic Misconduct to avoid actions which might contravene University policies and practices. These policies can be found at http://policy.usq.edu.au/portal/custom/search/category/usq_document_policy_type/Student.1.html.
The due date for an assignment is the date by which a student must despatch the assignment to the USQ. The onus is on the student to provide proof of the despatch date, if requested by the Examiner.
Students must retain a copy of each item submitted for assessment. This must be despatched to USQ within 24 hours if required by the Examiner.
In accordance with University Policy, the Examiner may grant an extension of the due date of an assignment in extenuating circumstances.
If electronic submission of assessments is specified for the course, students will be notified of this in the course Introductory Book and on the USQ Study Desk. All required electronic submission must be made through the Assignment Drop Box located on the USQ Study Desk for the course, unless directed otherwise by the examiner of the course. The due date for an electronically submitted assessment is the date by which a student must electronically submit the assignment. The assignment files must be submitted by 11.55pm on the due date using USQ time (as displayed on the clock on the course home page; that is, Australian Eastern Standard Time).
If the method of assessment submission is by written, typed or printed paper-based media students should (i) submit to the Faculty Office for students enrolled in the course in the on-campus mode, or (ii) mail to the USQ for students enrolled in the course in the external mode. The due date for the assessment is the date by which a student must (i) submit the assessment for students enrolled in the on-campus mode, or (ii) mail the assessment for students enrolled in the external mode.
The Faculty will NOT normally accept submission of assessments by facsimile or email.
Students who do not have regular access to postal services for the submission of paper-based assessments, or regular access to Internet services for electronic submission, or are otherwise disadvantaged by these regulations may be given special consideration. They should contact the examiner of the course to negotiate such special arrangements prior to the submission date.
Students who have undertaken all of the required assessments in a course but who have failed to meet some of the specified objectives of a course within the normally prescribed time may be awarded the temporary grade: IM (Incomplete - Make up). An IM grade will only be awarded when, in the opinion of the examiner, a student will be able to achieve the remaining objectives of the course after a period of non-directed personal study.
Students who, for medical, family/personal, or employment-related reasons, are unable to complete an assignment or to sit for an examination at the scheduled time may apply to defer an assessment in a course. Such a request must be accompanied by appropriate supporting documentation. One of the following temporary grades may be awarded IDS (Incomplete - Deferred Examination; IDM (Incomplete Deferred Make-up); IDB (Incomplete - Both Deferred Examination and Deferred Make-up).
Harvard (AGPS) is the referencing system required in this course. Students should use Harvard (AGPS) style in their assignments to format details of the information sources they have cited in their work. The Harvard (AGPS) style to be used is defined by the USQ Library's referencing guide.
Students will require access to e-mail and internet access to UConnect for this course.
