Learning outcomes and graduate attributes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. 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:

GA1: Intellectual rigour, GA2: Creativity, GA3: Ethical practice, GA4: Knowledge of a discipline, GA5: Lifelong learning, GA6: Communication and social skills, GA7: Cultural competence
GA1 GA2 GA3 GA4 GA5 GA6 GA7
1 demonstrate an understanding of load actions acting on bodies in equilibrium
2 demonstrate proficiency in calculating reactions in beams and trusses
3 determine properties of area including centroids and first and second moments of area
4 analyse axial force, shear force and bending moments in simple structures
5 analyse simply supported trusses to determine member forces
6 demonstrate proficiency in conducting and recording experimental results and presenting the results in a written report.
