This unit focuses on the development of students' abilities with respect to creativity and engineering design through project work and self guided learning building on achievements of the previous semester. Students explore the generation of alternative solutions in design such as lateral thinking, brainstorming, TRIZ, synectics and evaluate these alternatives. In preparation for industry experience, students evaluate their values, those of social responsibility and sustainable development relating these to engineering frameworks, such as the Professional Performance Innovation and Risk Protocol (PPIR), developed by the Warren Centre for Advanced Engineering at the University. There are two main areas of work. One is where students work in groups on a project to be completed by the end of semester. The other is a self managed component in which students complete a number of workshops and online modules over the year that align with their individual learning plans. Workshops consist of an online module and a face-to-face session. Achievements over the year are documented for presentation in the student portfolio. The portfolio is also used for self and peer assessment. By the end of the year students are expected to have a well developed portfolio containing a CV and evidence of achievement of a set of Engineering Australia Stage 1 competencies demonstrating a commitment to continuing professional development.
