General Information


This unit prepares you to effectively transition into higher education by investigating study support services and developing good study practices. You will explore the fundamental skills and knowledge that characterise contemporary engineering practice: stakeholder engagement, problem-solving, sustainable development, systems engineering, ethical conduct, risk assessment, information literacy, Australian Standards, social innovation, and technical communications. Your capacity to work productively in a small team and apply these fundamental aspects is developed and tested through undertaking a complex authentic engineering project. You will also learn to showcase your scholarly achievements by creating a student Portfolio. Successful completion of this unit will equip you with productive study habits; enlighten you with engineering practice insights; award you with practical communication skills in technical reporting, presentations, and sketching; and prepare you for the following series of Project-Based Learning units and associated opportunities to interact with the engineering profession.In this unit, you must complete compulsory practical activities. Refer to the Engineering Undergraduate Course Moodle site for proposed dates.
