Engineering Studies 4
This course introduces students to engineering studies providing a context within which to develop general competencies considered essential for the acquisition of effective, higher-order thinking skills necessary for further education, work and everyday life. Key competencies are embedded in the engineering studies syllabus to enhance student learning. The key competencies of collecting, analysing and organising information reflect core processes of inquiry and reporting which are explicit in the objectives and outcomes of engineering studies. The other key competencies are developed through the methodologies of the syllabus and through classroom pedagogy. In particular the course will focus on the historical development of engineering from it's origin to the role of engineers in society today as well as a study of the sociological and environmental factors that impact upon engineers and their work.
