Requisite(s): 41038 Professional Practice Review 1



This latter-stage undergraduate subject assists students to develop as professional engineers and supports preparation for the second stage of the Engineering Practice Program. Through participation in five workshops students develop and demonstrate their understanding of employment-related processes; ethical decision-making; social responsibility; opportunities for leadership and 'followership'; and the complexities of workplace culture. The workshops offer a range of collaborative and experiential learning activities in which students actively engage with their peers, reflect on their learning and refine their communication skills appropriate for professional engineering practice. Students review their past practice and consider their future development needs against the requirements of the Australian Engineering Competency Standards. Reflective practice is embedded throughout the subject to foster the development of students' strategies for continued professional development and lifelong learning.
