The Engineering Science major provides students with an overview of the fundamental principles of engineering that span the breadth of the field. Students will gain the mathematical, practical, and problem-solving skills to tackle a range of engineering challenges from a fundamental science perspective. It provides a solid theoretical grounding and strong practical focus in which students will learn how to provide solutions to complex societal challenges. The cross-disciplinary curriculum gives students the opportunity to explore a range of engineering fields and provides a pathway to further discipline-specific engineering studies.
What you'll learn
- have demonstrated knowledge and understanding across disciplines in engineering science that is typically at a level that, whilst supported by advanced textbooks, includes some aspects that will be informed by knowledge of the forefront of the field of study, GC1
- apply their knowledge and understanding in a manner that indicates a professional approach to engineering science, and have competencies typically demonstrated through devising and sustaining arguments (to both specialist and non-specialist audiences) and solving problems across disciplines in engineering science, GC2
- understand the constructs of the scientific method and apply these principles in engineering science using digital technologies, GC3
- gather and interpret relevant data across engineering science to inform judgements that include reflection on relevant social, scientific, or ethical issues, including being aware of the diversity of international perspectives associated across engineering science, and how these impact upon the practice of engineering science, GC4
- understand and appreciate cultural diversity and how it impacts on the practice of engineering science, GC5
- display a high standard of professional behaviour, including effective time management, both independently and as a team member, GC6
