This unit provides the central foundation to the methodology of professional engineering upon which students will build and expand upon as they progress through the engineering course program. In this unit we actively implement a general engineering design process (Whole System Design) that incorporates sustainability objectives and is compatible will most major disciplines of professional engineering. Along the way we will not only examine the engineering design process but also the related topics of the relationship between engineering and society; effective communication skills; professional ethics; and sustainability (of the built and natural environments). After successful completion of this unit you should have a practical understanding, experience, and demonstrated ability in team-based engineering design and a demonstrated competency in interdisciplinary foundation engineering knowledge and skills.
Four assignments (2 x 10%, 2 x 20%) 60%, examination 40%. To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit students must achieve a mark of at least 50% in the examination.
