Topic examples: Fundamental concepts of underground cables systems, topology and manufacture.
|After Topic 4||20%||1, 2|
Type: Report / Research / Paper / Case Study / Site Visit / Problem analysis / Project / Professional recommendation
Example: Report (Midterm Project) [This will include a progress report; literature review, hypothesis, and methodology/conclusions]
Word length: 1000
Topic examples: Design parameters of the equipment necessary for underground system design including standards.
|After Topic 9||25%||1,2,3,4|
Type: Report (Final Project)
[If a continuation of the midterm, this should complete the report by adding sections on: methodology, implementation / evaluation, verification / validation, conclusion / challenges and recommendations / future work. If this is a new report, all headings from the midterm and the final reports must be included.]
Word length: 2000
Topic examples: A project that investigates type of cable, manhole spacing, pulling considerations and all relevant design calculations for underground power supply.
Example: May be in the form of quizzes, class tests, practical assessments, remote labs, simulation software or case studies
Attendance / Tutorial Participation
Example: Presentation, discussion, group work, exercises, self-assessment/reflection, case study analysis, application.
