Engineers act as knowledge brokers, bringing together people and knowledge to enable technological advancement. In order to become expert knowledge brokers, engineers need to be able to appreciate different approaches to addressing a problem, as well as critically evaluating and synthesising information. In addition, engineers are expected to be able to create, manage and interpret knowledge. This course addresses these needs by further developing independent research skills. This course will commence by introducing different research paradigms and methods, including different knowledge and cultural frames. The course will then further develop on approaches to critically evaluate information, in order to make an informed and limited judgement. The course will then focus on qualitative and quantitative research methods, including survey design and the analysis of large data samples. The course will conclude on approaches to communicate data to different audiences.
