Syllabus:

As a student engineer, you are part of the engineering profession. In this course, you will develop your identity as a modern engineer who will collaboratively contribute to sustainable and equitable communities. This course will broadly introduce the engineering profession and highlight the socio-technical and interdisciplinary nature of engineering. The themes of the course will enable students to: distinguish and practise professional conduct; communicate and interact in a style appropriate to academic and professional contexts, including oral, written, and graphical styles; explain the engineering method from problem formulation through the complete life cycle; generate and assess ideas and solution alternatives for engineering problem solving; critically evaluate proposed engineering solutions in terms of sustainability, economic, environmental and social considerations; and apply basic project management strategies and processes. These themes will be explored through a variety of team and project-based learning activities.
