ENGP1000: Professional Engagement Program 1

2020 unit information

The BEHonours degree (and all associated combined degrees) requires all students to develop a deep understanding of the professional and social contexts in which their engineering knowledge can be applied, and how this context shapes the application of their knowledge. This involves a strong engagement with the practice of their profession and ensuring that they are responsive to the needs and context of industry and community. This engagement is met through the completion of the PEP - Professional Engagement Program - a degree-long integrated program of professional development activities that involves students in contextualising their learning, progressively taking greater responsibility for their own development, and building the foundations of a strong professional engineering career. Once students have completed the requirements of the first stage of the Professional Engagement Program they will pass PEP1.
