During 2021 we will continue to support students who need to study remotely due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 and travel restrictions. Make sure you check the location code when selecting a unit outline or choosing your units of study in Sydney Student. Find out more about what these codes mean. Both remote and on-campus locations have the same learning activities and assessments, however teaching staff may vary. More information about face-to-face teaching and assessment arrangements for each unit will be provided on Canvas.

Unit of study_

ENGG3062: Technology Education (Advanced)

This unit aims to give the student experience in critically engaging an audience in the theoretical and practical understanding of engineering and technology. Students will learn professional skills in client relationship management, teaching and presenting, project management, leadership and teamwork. This work will be carried out with partner schools to enhance the engineering knowledge and understanding of Stage 5 high school students. This unit places students in an environment with which they are familiar, albeit in a very different and challenging role. It allows them the opportunity to deliver a project for a professional external client and in doing so showcase engineering, the faculty and the University to the wider community.
