The Engineering curriculum requires students to develop subject knowledge, skills and understanding that allow them to solve engineering problems in an informed way. Students access new technologies, materials and processes in addition to established engineering practices. The curriculum enables students to put theory into practice, solving engineering problems through the application of mathematical principles and computer modelling/simulation to produce carefully considered manufactured outcomes which showcase essential practical skills.
Students apply their knowledge in a variety of contexts, developing systems that contribute to effective functional products that they build and test. Students understand the contribution that engineering makes to society and the economy and have the opportunity to make informed decisions about further learning opportunities and career choices.
