ENGP3002: Professional Engagement Program 3B

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 3, students review their professional network and summarise and reflect on their overall achievement in the program in terms of graduate qualities, stage 1 competencies and transferable skills. Options for professional registration are discussed and each of the objectives of PEP are reviewed. Single degree student must complete this unit in one semester whereas double degree students may take 2 semesters for this unit.

Code ENGP3002
Academic unit Engineering
Credit points 0
Must have passed all ENGP1XXX and ENGP2XXX, and taken but not fail ENGP3001

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

  • LO1. Distinguish between the potential pathways towards professional engineering registration and career progression
  • LO2. Research, classify and compare potential career paths for engineering graduates both within the professional engineering sector and elsewhere
  • 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 a refined value proposition for a potential graduate role in engineering
  • LO4. Reflect on achievements over the entire professional engagement program and determine whether the goals of the program have been met
