Subject outline

Engineering is one of the oldest professions and its disciplines encompass a diversity of specialty sub-disciplines. Many engineers are involved in projects and hold supervisory or administrative positions whilst others work in design, construction, research and teaching. Key skills for a successful engineer include: written and oral communication, perception, visualisation, logical reasoning and problem solving; management of oneself, other people, time and equipment. Engineers are capable when working with other people and using mathematics and science in design and problem solving. The subject provides a perspective and exposure to discipline specific engineering practice. Through project-based learning, the student will develop a range of generic skills together with experience in complex problem solving and an appreciation of the complete project cycle.
