Course Synopsis

The essence of professional engineering practice is that we are dealing with people. Different people behave differently in the same, and different situations. The biggest challenge is rarely to work out what to do, but rather to communicate effectively to and motivate a group of people to work out what to do, and how to do it. Hence it is crucial for the engineers to arrive at their own understanding so that they can apply it in the varied situations they face in the future. In these circumstances, effective learning occurs with the learner's dynamic involvement. Engineers cannot learn passively by simply listening to lectures - they must positively engage the material and experience of this course.  Through the conceptual material, their reading, and exercises, students will learn to cope with the practical business difficulties of imperfect and incomplete information, conflicting information, divergent personal views and internal organisational politics. It will require them to actively engage in sorting, sifting, categorising, consolidating and transforming data. The presentation and the project require the ability to work in teams with their fellow students, and to learn from one another's contributions. Hence it will be important for each student to develop the ability to effectively communicate their ideas, and listen to and respect the ideas of others.
