ENGP2001: Professional Engagement Program 2A

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. This is the first unit in stage 2 of the program which is focused on supporting students to secure a work experience job by the end of stage 2. This unit allows students to do a gap analysis between their strengths (personal and professional) and employer requirements, and then make plans to fill these gaps.

At the completion of this unit, you should be able to:

  • LO1. Identify engineering intern employer needs, specific to your area of study, as well as contemporary job search and hiring practices, and use these to inform personal and professional development goals
  • LO2. Build a personal value proposition for a potential engineering internship employer and articulate this in written and oral forms. This must include both technical skills as well as transferable skills
  • LO3. Continue to develop a growing portfolio of professional engagement activities linked to the Engineers Australia National Competency standard for Professional Engineers (stage 1), and use this as evidence to support your value proposition
