Professional Engineering and IT (ENGG1805)


ENGG1805 aims to introduce students to the fundamental principles that underlie professional practice in information technologies. It lays the foundation for later studies, and presents to the students challenges common to a multidisciplinary IT environment. The subject also provides students with the opportunity to develop important attributes such as communication skills, an understanding of professional ethics, and of working as a part of a team. Tool use is an important aspect of this unit: students are required to learn to use tools for testing, managing artefacts, planning and completing work, and communicating within the team. A selection of guest speakers will address students on different career paths.
