How to read this table:

The top section of the matrix indicates which assessment tasks (A1-A6) are used to assess the course learning outcomes (LO 1-6). Below this, each LO is mapped to the Master of Engineering program learning outcomes (PO1-7), and Engineers Australia Stage 1 Professional Competencies (C1.1-C3.6). The shading of the matrix elements indicates the strength with which each LO contributes to the Program Outcome/Professional Competency according to the following:

Strong ContributionModerate ContributionMinor ContributionNo Contribution

The overall contribution of the course to the Program Outcomes/Professional Competencies is summarized by the shading of the 2nd column, where the learning outcome mapping has been aggregated to the course level.

Descriptions of the Assessment Tasks, Learning Outcomes, Program Outcomes and Professional Competencies are provided on the following page(s).
