  • Overview

    ENGG1805 aims to introduce students to the fundamental principles that underlie the study of engineering and information technologies. It lays the foundation for later studies, and presents to the students challenges common to a multidisciplinary engineering environment. The subject also provides students with the opportunity to develop an understanding of engineering ethics and of working as a part of a team.
    Professional Engineering and IT (6CP) is composed from the following five parts: (a) Introduction to engineering: the engineer as problem solver, critical analysis of greatest engineering achievements and failure. (b) Introduction to common engineering software tools: word processors, project management tools (c) Ethics and workplace health and safety. (d) Testing - concepts of destructive and not destructive tests will be given on samples. (e) "Meet the professionals" - A selection of guest speakers will address students on the most important aspects of the engineering profession. (f) Design Process - The process of design synthesis as an important part of engineering: students will be required to complete an engineering design (from conception, to implementation and testing) maintaining proper lab notes.
