ENGP2003: Professional Engagement Program 2C

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. In this final unit of stage 2 of the program, students practice an elevator pitch and prepare for their work experience role by exploring ethics and workplace health and safety. Single degree student must complete this unit in one semester whereas double degree students may take 2 semesters for this unit.
