Subject learning objectives (SLOs)

Course intended learning outcomes (CILOs)

Upon successful completion of this subject students should be able to:


  1. Independently or as a part of the team identify and apply relevant problem solving methodologies.
  2. Ensure that all aspects of the project are soundly based on fundamental principles.
  3. Critically review and apply relevant standards and codes of practice underpinning the discipline.
  4. Collect knowledge using research in order to identify and investigate complex problems.
  5. Design and conduct appropriate experiments and other tests, analyse and interpret result data and formulate reliable conclusions.
  6. Identify constraints, uncertainties and risks of the system.
  7. Conceptualize alternative approaches and evaluate potential outcomes against appropriate criteria
  8. Competently address problems involving uncertainty and ambiguity.

This subject also contributes specifically to the development of the following Course Intended Learning Outcomes (CILOs):


  • Socially Responsible: FEIT graduates identify, engage, interpret and analyse stakeholder needs and cultural perspectives, establish priorities and goals, and identify constraints, uncertainties and risks (social, ethical, cultural, legislative, environmental, economics etc.) to define the system requirements. (B.1)
  • Design Oriented: FEIT graduates apply problem solving, design and decision-making methodologies to develop components, systems and processes to meet specified requirements. (C.1)
  • Technically Proficient: FEIT graduates apply abstraction, mathematics and discipline fundamentals, software, tools and techniques to evaluate, implement and operate systems. (D.1)
  • Collaborative and Communicative: FEIT graduates work as an effective member or leader of diverse teams, communicating effectively and operating within cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural contexts in the workplace. (E.1)
  • Reflective: FEIT graduates critically self-review their performance to improve themselves, their teams, and the broader community and society. (F.1)
