Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
Special approval is required for enrolment into TNE Program units.

* The Final WW Date is the final date from which you can withdraw from the unit without academic penalty, however you will still incur a financial liability (see withdrawal dates explained for more information).
Unit census dates currently displaying for 2020 are indicative and subject to change. Finalised census dates for 2020 will be available from the 1st October 2020.
ILO 1 Explain the theories and methods of measuring temperature, pressure, flow and level, operating principles of components of maritime control systems including sensors, transducers, transmitters, actuators, controllers, signal conditioning units, signal processing and interfacing with other devices
ILO 2 Apply engineering principles, mathematical representations (including differential equations, transfer functions and state space model), block diagrams and control theory to characterise maritime control systems and their components and analyse their stability and performance
ILO 3 Design and analyse automatic maritime control systems and/or with hardware including data acquisition and I/O interfacing devices such as PLCs and CAN buses and software by applying PID, modern and intelligent control laws in control systems used in marine and offshore industries
ILO 4 Use LabVIEW and/or MATLAB/Simulink (as required) as a tool for design, simulation, system identification and modelling, operation and analysis of performance of the designed maritime control systems against the pre-defined specifications.
