Description

This skills-based course will introduce students to the "engineering process". Through a series of lectures, exercises and projects, the students will gain experience in specific skills and activities that contribute to the engineering process. Examples include problem solving, technical sketching, team work and report writing. Additionally, the importance of sustainability, ethics, diversity, and biculturalism in an engineering context will be introduced. Students will also gain a better understanding of the different engineering disciplines in regards to a career choice.

Learning Outcomes

  • After successful completion of this course, at an appropriate level you will be able to:
  • Describe the eight important steps in the engineering process and apply them to evaluate ill-defined engineering problems.
  • Demonstrate the effective use of appropriate decision-making tools and ethical frameworks for the relevant steps of the engineering process.
  • Compose and present a properly formatted technical report, through the ethical and effective use of support tools, that includes meaningful figures, clear tables, and correct citations.
  • Identify the elements of risk and their relationship to safety and engineering failure, and use appropriate tools for risk quantification.
  • Identify the attributes of a highly effective team and recognise your own and your teammates’ preferences in the context of teamwork.
  • Show awareness of the relationship between the Māori and the Crown in the management of Aotearoa | New Zealand’s resources, the mana whenua perspectives of the natural environment, and Aotearoa | New Zealand’s unique relationship with the Pacific Islands.
  • Explain sustainable design and its connection to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs); and assess environmental, social, and economic impacts.
  • Interpret and create visual concepts quickly and effectively, using various methods.
