Integrated Engineering 2 - ENGG2111

The aim of this unit is to enhance the capacity of students to assess, plan improve and evaluate their learning needs in relation to becoming a professional engineer. This unit will continue the development of both academic and professional skills through relevant and authentic activities and a project. Integrated Engineering 2 (ENGG2111) will use management and projects as a perspective to explore engineering approaches to addressing open-ended problems. The unit requires students to engage in a project that requires a degree of independence, innovation, resilience and resourcefulness as well as to investigate key skills associated with managing projects and relate these to national and global employability skills. The project raises awareness about the complexity of engineering in that problems may be vague or ambiguous with no clear right or wrong answers, and students are encouraged to explore and critique ideas, use logical problem solving, and reflect on the process and decisions made with the explicit purpose of becoming critical thinkers. There are two main components: projects and professional development. Students learn project management skills which are then applied to a project. The professional development aspect involves students rating themselves and their peers on teamwork skills, including communication and conflict resolution. Achievements throughout the semester are documented for presentation in the students' e-portfolio. By the end of the semester students are expected to have a well-developed career concept that aligns with engineering competencies.
