ENGG1000 History and Philosophy of Engineering

Credit points: 6 Teacher/Coordinator: Dr Rodney Fiford Session: Semester 1 Classes: Lectures, Tutorials, E-Learning, Independent Research Assessment: Through semester assessment (100%) Mode of delivery: Normal (lecture/lab/tutorial) day
ENGG1000 is a unique course that aims to provide students with an understanding of the historical development of Engineering with relation to societal expectations of the period. Engineering as a field of study and profession has developed over millennia from simple (yet significant) advances in technology such as the lever and wheel, to modern day examples such as advanced computers, nanomaterials and space flight.
Interaction between human society and Engineers has helped develop and guide the advancement of engineering technology; with society posing problems for Engineers to solve and Engineers developing new technology that changed the course of human history, and helped shape the world we live in.
The general philosophy behind Engineering is that Engineers work to fulfill the needs of society (water, electricity, technological improvements etc. ), and as such Engineers are expected to act ethically towards society. The role of Engineers in society will be analysed and discussed from a humanistic perspective, with relation to the current Engineers Australia code of ethics. Other relevant philosophical analyses of Engineering as a skill and profession will also be examined such as, aesthetics, creativity, the epistemology of Engineering and more.
This course will use online resources extensively and help develop research and communication skills of students, whilst providing an overview of the historical significance of Engineers in society, and what it means to be an Engineer.
ENGG3800 Industry and Community Projects

Credit points: 6 Teacher/Coordinator: Anthony Kadi Session: Intensive December,Intensive February,Intensive January,Intensive July,Semester 1,Semester 2 Classes: E-Learning, Seminars, Project Work - own time Assumed knowledge: Upper-level disciplinary knowledge. Required knowledge will vary by project. Assessment: through semester assessment (100%) Mode of delivery: Normal (lecture/lab/tutorial) day
Note: Department permission required for enrolment
This unit is designed for third year students to undertake a project that allows them to work with one of the University's industry and community partners. Students will work in teams on a real-world problem provided by the partner. This experience will allow students to apply their academic skills and disciplinary knowledge to a real-world issue in an authentic and meaningful way. Participation in this unit will require students to submit an application.
ELEC1004 Practical Intro to Electrical Engineering

Credit points: 6 Teacher/Coordinator: Dr Swamidoss Sathiakumar Session: Semester 2 Classes: lectures, laboratories Assumed knowledge: HSC Physics and Mathematics Assessment: through semester assessments (100%) Mode of delivery: Normal (lecture/lab/tutorial) day
This unit of study aims to expose the students with fundamental (basic) concepts of different specializations within electrical engineering and give them hands on experience to develop the required engineering skills. The unit is based on extensive laboratory work covering Measuring skills using basic electrical instruments, Soldering skills to make electronic circuits and test them, Computer programming skills including real time programming and simulation programming, Use of internet technology, Wireless technology, Renewable energy technology.
The following units are approved as general electives for Bachelor of Engineering Honours students, provided that students are able to meet the enrolment requirements specified by the relevant faculty and provided that the unit of study is not substantially the same as a unit of study already completed.
(1) Any units of study available to undergraduate students offered by the Faculties of Engineering, Science, Arts and Social Sciences, or the Sydney Business School.
(2) Any other units of study approved by the Faculty of Engineering Courses Committee.
(3) Any units of study approved by the Dean (or his/her delegate in these matters), or by the relevant Head of School or Program Director, on a case by case basis upon application by the student.
