Integrated Engineering 1 - ENGG1111

Year - 2018

Integrated Engineering 1 is an introductory Unit of Study within the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies. It aims to provide commencing undergraduate engineering students with an understanding of the nature and diversity of engineering practice and begin the development of a set of intellectual tools for integrating their ongoing personal, academic, and professional development. The unit highlights foundational engineering and professional practice skills, and the application of these skills to real world projects and workplace practice. It demonstrates the role that various professional and academic competencies play in the ability to manage contemporary professional engineering issues. The students are introduced to the Engineers Australia (EA) competency standards as one framework for evaluating their professional development, and students establish a preliminary portfolio which includes a self-assessment of their current understanding and capabilities against this framework. This portfolio will then be maintained and evolved throughout (and ideally beyond) their degree as a way of demonstrating current competencies and planning future development. This component also considers the way in which the diverse elements of their degree integrate together synergistically to establish emergent professional capabilities. In developing knowledge of the discipline, students enhance their capacity for lifelong learning through critical reflection and self-assessment, creating and monitoring career goals as well as building a sense of responsibility for their learning. Through case studies, design projects and challenges, students expand their communication skills, develop competency in team-based problem solving and in creating innovative solutions, as well as apply critical thinking and inquiry. The activities encourage the development of research skills, experience of the engineering design process, leading and managing projects, and the significance of ethics, safety and sustainability. Dalyell students may enrol in ENGD1000 Building a Sustainable World in place of ENGG1111
