Content

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.

Assessment

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 40% in the examination and compulsory attendance is required by all students to unit-specific activities at Waurn Ponds (Geelong). These unit-specific activities may be undertaken either at scheduled sessions on multiple days during the trimester or during a single day of unit-specific activities scheduled during Week 9.
