UEECD0004 - Apply material science to solving electrotechnology engineering problems

TAFE Victoria logo
Unit code: UEECD0004 | Study level: TAFE


This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to apply material science to solving electrotechnology engineering problems.It includes identifying and solving electrotechnology engineering problems using material science. It also includes applying knowledge of materials science and documenting justification for solutions.


For Melbourne campuses

Assessment tasks will be designed to reinforce & extend knowledge and skill competence within set & controlled parameters in accordance with each unit's learning outcomes & performance criteria requirements, including the setting of work based practical application tasks designed to provide evidence of competence outcomes, within periodic and scheduled timelines.

Students will be expected to demonstrate the following required skills:

  • applying material science to developing solutions to electrotechnology problems
  • applying relevant work health and safety (WHS)/occupational health and safety (OHS) requirements, including
  • using risk control measures
  • considering environment and health risks in resolving electrotechnology problems
  • dealing with unplanned situations in accordance with WHS/OHS and approval from relevant person/s
  • documenting proposed solutions and justification
  • obtaining the scope of electrotechnology problem and materials to be used
  • obtaining tools, equipment and testing devices
  • interpreting results to identify material science solutions to electrotechnology problems
  • using testing devices
  • using test and measurement results to identify material science solutions.

Required reading

The qualified trainer and assessor will provide teaching and learning materials as required in the form of workbooks produced by the VU Polytechnic and/or via the Victoria University Polytechnic e-Learning system.
