These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
demonstrate an understanding of the scientific method and the concepts of accuracy, precision and error in relation to engineering experimentation
apply appropriate methods to make experimental measurements of simple engineering phenomena
analyse and interpret experimental data to draw appropriate conclusions
communicate details of engineering experiments in a suitable written form.
