  • Investigation – Conduct investigation of complex engineering problems using research-based knowledge (WK8) and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions
  • Modern Tool Usage - Create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to complex engineering problems, with an understanding of the limitations (WK6)
  • The Engineer and Society - Apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solutions to complex engineering problems (WK7)
  • Environment and Sustainability - Understand and evaluate the sustainability and impact of professional engineering work in the solutions of complex engineering problems in societal and environmental contexts. (WK7)
  • Ethics - Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice (WK7)
  • Individual and Team Work - Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multi-disciplinary settings
  • Communication - Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions
  • Project Management and Finance - Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering management principles and economic decision making and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments
  • Life Long Learning - Recognise the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change

The curriculum encompasses the knowledge profile as summarised in the table below:

  • A systematic, theory-based understanding of the natural sciences applicable to the discipline.
  • Conceptually-based mathematics, numerical analysis, statistics and formal aspects of computer and information science to support analysis and modelling applicable to the discipline.
  • A systematic, theory-based formulation of engineering fundamentals required in the engineering discipline.
  • Engineering specialist knowledge that provides theoretical frameworks and bodies of knowledge for the accepted practice areas in the engineering discipline; much is at the forefront of the discipline.
  • Knowledge that supports engineering design in a practice area.
  • Knowledge of engineering practice (technology) in the practice areas in the engineering discipline.
  • Comprehension of the role of engineering in society and identified issues in engineering practice in the discipline: ethics and the professional responsibility of an engineer to public safety; the impacts of engineering activity: economic, social, cultural, environmental and sustainability.
  • Engagement with selected knowledge in the research literature of the discipline.
