The subject will develop your understanding of the engineering modelling and design processes by taking you through the life cycle of a real-world engineering project and using a combination of lectures and hands-on workshop sessions.
You will work in a small team of students on one of several interdisciplinary engineering challenges, applying engineering concepts, scientific knowledge and creative problem-solving skills in order to satisfy specific design goals.
Along the way you will gain an understanding of the depth and breadth of the engineering design process, while gaining competency in the technical tools and professional skills required to not only complete the challenge, but more broadly help serve the engineering needs of an increasingly complex society.

Intended learning outcomes
Upon completion of this subject, students will be able to:
- ILO 1 - Demonstrate a conceptual understanding of the mathematics, numerical analysis, statistics, and computer and information sciences which underpin the engineering discipline.
- ILO 2 - Develop and construct mathematical, physical and conceptual models of situations, systems and devices, and utilise such models for purposes of analysis and design.
- ILO 3 - Apply established engineering methods, techniques, tools and resources to complex engineering problem solving.
- ILO 4 - Apply systematic approaches to the conduct and management of engineering projects.
- ILO 5 - Demonstrate competency in current tools for analysis, simulation, visualisation, synthesis and design, particularly computer-based tools and packages.
- Ability to realistically assess the scope and dimensions of a project or task, and employ appropriate planning and time management skills to achieve a substantial outcome;
- Capacity to apply creative approaches to identify and develop alternative concepts and problem-solving procedures;
- Ability to work effectively in a team environment in order to produce a satisfactory project outcome;
- Communication skills and documentation procedures through design briefs, written reports and oral presentations;
- Hands-on skills through practical projects;
- Perception of their own learning and development; understanding the need to critically review and reflect on capability and undertake appropriate learning programs.
