About this Unit
From 2014 this unit will be replaced by 300964 Introduction to Engineering Practice for Engineering courses; 300975 Professional Competencies for Construction courses and 301030 Introduction to Industrial Design Methods for Design courses. This unit encourages students to explore the professional responsibilities and challenges faced by Engineers, Designers and Building professionals. Students are introduced to emerging issues and approaches to sustainability and the complex nature of the design problems they will encounter in professional practice. Students engage in a semester-long research and problem solving task that addresses environmental and social sustainability imperatives and fosters fundamental research, design and communication skills. Special emphasis is placed on lifelong learning, academic literacy and professional skills including information literacy, project management, and teamwork which equip students for subsequent academic and professional contexts.
