ENEG11001 Engineering Skills 1

Course details

Students are introduced to the role of professional engineers as mediators between the technical, business, social, cultural, environmental, economic and political contexts of engineering activities. They investigate and select materials and processes for engineering applications and justify decisions made. Students apply information literacy skills and information technology skills to engineering projects; they use drawing, modelling and simulation tools to analyse and present project outcomes; they apply risk assessment and workplace health and safety assessment to engineering activities; and they design, conduct and report on practical, hands-on activities reinforced with a one week residential school during the first week of term. Students explore the complex nature of engineering activities and the need to deal with uncertainty and conflicting information, they prepare a portfolio to demonstrate development of a professional attitude, problem-solving skills, technical knowledge and productive work practices, and provide evidence of a professional capacity to communicate, work and learn productively, both individually and in teams.
Distance Education (Flex) students will be required to attend a compulsory residential school held during Week One of Term One to promote development of course learning outcomes.
