To provide students with broad knowledge of engineering and the engineering profession; to motivate students towards a career in engineering by examining the professional activities that the many types of Professional Engineer perform in engineering projects to completion.

Learning Teaching & Assessment Strategy:
Concepts, principles and theories explored in the formal lectures, practiced in tutorial classes. Cognitive and personal skills developed in interdisciplinary design project, students are working in small groups supported by members of academic staff. the coursework and oral presentation will assess the wider learning outcomes expressed in the descriptor. Supplementary assessment is to repair deficiencies in original assessment.

Outline Syllabus:
The syllabus comprises an in-depth case study of an interdisciplinary design project. This will give each student an opportunity to explore engineering within their own field of interest and intended degree course. In particular they will investigate the relationships between their own field of engineering and those of other professions to show the holistic nature of modern engineering design. A particular aspect of study will be that to do with sustainability issues as applied to engineering design.
