Course learning outcomes
Students who successfully complete this course will be able to:
- apply coherent and advanced knowledge of the chosen major in engineering in diverse contexts and applications using critical thinking and judgment
- apply knowledge of research principles and methods to plan and execute a piece of research with some independence, as preparation for research higher degrees
- apply problem solving, design and decision-making methodologies to identify and provide innovative solutions to complex problems with intellectual independence
- apply abstraction, mathematics and engineering fundamentals to the analysis, design and operation of a model, using appropriate engineering methods and tools
- communicate proficiently in professional practice to a variety of audiences, function as an effective member or leader of a diverse team, and use the basic tools and practices of project management within project work
- demonstrate professionalism, integrity, ethical conduct, professional accountability and an awareness of professional engineering practice in a global and sustainable context
- reflect on and take responsibility for their own learning and self-management processes, and manage their own time and processes effectively by regularly reviewing of personal performance as a means of managing continuing professional development and lifelong learning.
