|Short Description:||Hydraulics Practice|
|Faculty or Section :||Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences|
|School or Department :||School of Civil Engineering and Surveying|
|Student contribution band :||Band 2|
|ASCED code :||030907 - Water and Sanitary Engineering|
|Grading basis :||Pass/Not Pass|
Examiner: Kamrun Nahar
Pre-requisite: ENV2103 or ENV1101
Practice courses seek to develop basic competencies and attributes commensurate with the intuitive and professional skills sought in engineering graduates. This course provides a broad introduction to the practical aspects of water engineering and focuses on the development of analytical, manual, diagnostic, communication and group interaction skills.
This course covers a range of experimental activities in the area of Hydraulics. Students will conduct testing and experimental work in a team environment in the Laboratory and/or remotely via internet access. Students will then analyse and present the subsequent results on an individual basis. Laboratory sessions provide for a better understanding of relevant theory and calibration techniques for flow measuring devices through hands on experience.
This course contains a mandatory residential school for external students and mandatory on-campus laboratories for on-campus students.
The course objectives define the student learning outcomes for a course. On completion of this course students will be able to:
- conduct experiments to verify common fundamental principles relating to fluid statics and fluid flow in pipelines and channels;
- analyse and present experimental data to a suitable engineering standard.

- The dates and location of the mandatory residential school are available from the Residential School Timetable (http://www.usq.edu.au/handbook/current/resschoolsched.html). On-campus students can follow the Class Timetables (https://www.usq.edu.au/current-students/organise-enrolment/timetables/class) as a guide or enrolled students can refer to their student portal and navigate to Student Centre>Self Service>Timetables>My Weekly Schedule.
Important assessment information
External students must attend the mandatory residential school and on-campus students must attend the mandatory on-campus laboratories or practical classes. 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.
Requirements for students to complete each assessment item satisfactorily:
To satisfactorily complete each assessment item students must achieve a mark of 1 out of 1 for that assessment item.
Penalties for late submission of required work:
Students should refer to the Assessment Procedure http://policy.usq.edu.au/documents.php?id=14749PL (point 4.2.4)
Requirements for student to be awarded a passing grade in the course:
To be assured of receiving a passing grade a student must attend and participate in the mandatory residential school and achieve a mark of 1 out of 1 for each assessment item.
Method used to combine assessment results to attain final grade:
As P is the only passing grade available for this course, all students who have 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 Fail 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.
Students must familiarise themselves with the USQ Assessment Procedures (http://policy.usq.edu.au/documents.php?id=14749PL).
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. http://www.usq.edu.au/library/referencing
As part of the mandatory residential school, students may be expected to undertake a combination of lectures, tutorials, laboratories, practical classes and assessment as advised by the course examiner.
