The development of engineering management skills is essential to practice as a professional engineer. Engineers carry out technical analyses, but technology is always embedded in the context of society and business. Engineers therefore need to be able to integrate their solutions and planning within these broader contexts. This course covers professional engineering competencies, continuous professional development, engineering ethics, risk management, safety engineering, environmental impact assessment, life cycle analysis, socio-technical considerations, societal impact assessment, engineering implications of Treaty of Waitangi and biculturalism, systems engineering principles, project management methods, contract law, product liability law, health & safety legistation, intellectual property protection, innovation, entrepreneurship and route to market, cash flow and time value of money, financial reports, engineering psychology, managing teams & conflict, and writing an engineering applied research report.
