At this level, students are expected to work autonomously and collaboratively to generate innovative designs and solutions, and are conscious of the responsibilities and accountabilities of engineers and of directing the development of professional skills. The focus for this unit is on fostering systems thinking skills where students are encouraged to approach problems holistically, drawing together the disparate elements of their developing capacities, and show how the nature and boundaries are understood in order to formulate technically sound solutions as well as address broader needs. Through a number of activities, students are provided opportunities to demonstrate skills in leadership, implement innovative design solutions, and mentor others. Students prepare for the transition from 4th year to post-graduate or employment assessing choices, refining options through a well developed, strategically focused academic or career plan. By the end of the year students are expected to have a sophisticated portfolio demonstrating achievements in alignment with Engineering Australia Stage 1 competencies thus demonstrating a commitment to the profession and capacity to achieve chartered engineering status.
