The aim of this subject is to give participants both practical experience in, and theoretical insights into, elements of engineering innovation.
The subject is intense, challenging, experiential and requires significant self-direction. Participants will work on an innovation project sponsored by a local organisation.
A key theme is that the individual cannot be separated from the technical processes of engineering innovation. The impact of both individual and team contributions to the engineering and innovation processes will be examined in the context of real world challenges.
Creating Innovative Engineering (CIE) and its companion subject, Creating Innovative Professionals ENGR90039 (CIP), are delivered by the University's Innovation Practice Program. To learn more about the Program, including the range of organizations that have participated as sponsors, examples of past projects and to hear students talk about their experiences in taking CIE/CIP, please go to the Innovation Practice Program’s website.
All project sponsors will require that students maintain the confidentiality of their proprietary information. Some project sponsors will require students to assign any Intellectual Property created (other than Copyright in their Assessment Materials) to the University. The projects may vary in the hours needed for a successful outcome.
Intended learning outcomes
Upon completion of this subject, students will have an introductory ability to:
- ILO 1 - Conceptualise their career as series of innovation projects, recognise the importance of a growth mindset and entrepreneurial thinking for such a career, and know how to enact these ways of thinking;
- I LO2 - Know how to, and demonstrate the ability to listen, reflect and act on personal development, team operations, and team leadership challenges;
- ILO3 - Collaborate, create positive relationships and productively shape group dynamics in highly uncertain professional environments;
- ILO4 - Have understandings and skills to work empathically with colleagues and clients who see the world differently from them;
- ILO5 - Apply understanding of how value is created in a multi-disciplinary professional context, and the importance of value creation, rather than just technical problem-solving, to professional work.
