Exposure to basic workshop practice techniques and application of the basic skills to undertake a project. To comply with Occupational Health and Safety regulations, students are required to have basic person protection equipment (PPE) from week 1 which will cost a minimum of $60. Specific requirements are contained in the course outline available through the GENG1000 Blackboard site which students can access after they have enrolled.

Compulsory Requirements

In order to pass this course, each student must complete ALL of the following compulsory requirements:

General Course Requirements:

  • Workshop: Induction Requirement - Students must attend and pass the induction requirements before attending these sessions. - Workshop Induction: Induction to the workshop is compulsory in Week 1. Failure to attend the induction session will block entry to the workshop and therefore prevent completion of GENG1000. As a result of this, enrolments into GENG1000 cannot be accepted once the opportunity to complete the induction sessions in Week 1 has passed. Students must participate in one workshop session per week to complete GENG1000. When an absence is unavoidable and substantiated, students must liaise with the workshop coordinator to swap their session attendance for that week.
