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.

ENGG3112: Interdisciplinary Engineering

ENGG3112 will provide an opportunity for students to experience the interaction of different disciplines of engineering needed to deliver complex engineered systems. Students will work in multi-engineering-disciplinary teams to evaluate complex engineered systems in the context of contemporary global challenges, and put forward recommendations for change during semester-long project. The project will also have an emphasis on how engineering can contribute (positively and negatively) to complex global challenges.
