Undergraduate and Postgraduate
Modern engineers do much more than apply technical knowledge to solve problems. Engineering requires a broad understanding of the problems being solved, the stakeholders, diligent project management, communication and team work.
In this studio students are tasked with solving a real-world, genuine problem through an engineered solution. Students are expected to apply engineering design principles and methodologies to analyse the project requirements and lead their project through to completion.
The subject aims to enhance and polish students' capabilities to apply engineering design processes. While the emphasis is on realistic engineering-team/client/boss interactions, needs exploration, project development and delivery, this subject also draws heavily on the technical expertise the students have developed up until this stage of the course.
