Course summary

Our program encourages you to question, analyse, and explore engineering challenges from multiple perspectives. You will become adept at collecting, organising, and interpreting information from diverse sources, making informed decisions and proposing creative solutions to complex problems. You will learn to identify, select, and justify the use of appropriate techniques, methods, and development strategies while incorporating ethical, sustainable, and environmental dimensions. You will learn to apply management techniques for lean transition, critically evaluating the commercial and economic impacts of waste identification and value stream analysis. You will learn how to apply engineering knowledge and the scientific method within operations and management settings, planning and implementing creative solutions while adhering to cost and time constraints. Engineers need to convey their ideas clearly and effectively. You will develop exceptional communication skills, enabling you to engage both expert and non-expert audiences with precision and clarity.

Assessment method

A range of assessment methodologies are utilised and designed to enable you to explore the discipline, your career aspirations and the development of professional networks. Assessment methods include both formative and summative submissions. The formative assessments focus on theoretical underpinnings, ethics and frameworks, practical application of theory to practice and development of practitioner resources applied to different settings. In the main, formative assessments provide opportunities for group work, peer to peer support and feedforward to support the completion of summative assessments. A variety of summative assessment methods are used, including case studies, practical and lab reports (including computer aided design), data analysis and systems processing, and applied problem solving.
