Engineering Practice


Undergraduate

Description

This subject helps initiate students to the engineering workplace by guiding them through the employment process; developing the communication and documentation skills appropriate to engineering practice; showing them how to learn through experience; exploring the nature and culture of the workplace; introducing ethical and social issues; and helping them to plan for their own personal and professional development. Students negotiate their learning options from a range of compulsory and optional topics including ethics and social responsibility; industrial relations; workplace, health and safety; and the culture of engineering. Some tasks include preparing a personal résumé, job application letters, employment interviewing, learning style assessment, ethics case study, and industrial relations case study.

Assessment is essentially formative to assist students in achieving an acceptable level. However, students are not able to undertake the engineering experience first internship until they have passed all the compulsory components of this subject.
