In this unit, you must complete a two-week mobility trip as a compulsory practicum and work on an international humanitarian engineering project for a developing or marginalised community. Places are limited to self-paying participants and recipients of a New Colombo Plan Mobility Scholarship. Through collaborative discussions with your host community, you will critically analyse the development context and identify wants, needs, strengths and opportunities for social innovation. You will make recommendations by applying principles of sustainable development, human-centred design and systems engineering. You will create a project implementation plan, generate rapid prototypes and present your design to community members and assess its long-term viability. You will demonstrate ethical conduct and professional accountability, team membership and team leadership, knowledge management and a creative, innovative and proactive demeanour. Additional financial assistance for mobility trips is available by application for an OS-Help loan.
