Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject provides a perspective and exposure to current engineering practice and the role it can play in various engineering disciplines. Students are required to take part in a research project. The project is a design program for first-year University students which provides students the opportunity to learn about creative engineering design, teamwork and communication through real, inspiring, sustainable and cross-cultural development projects. In addition to the design project students further develop their technical skills in a laboratory-based project component.
