Career Opportunities

Graduates will be able to: Apply knowledge of mathematics, natural science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialisation to defined and applied engineering procedures, processes, systems or methodologies. Identify, formulate, research literature and analyse broadly defined engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using analytical tools appropriate to the discipline or areas of specialization. Design solutions for broadly-defined engineering technology problems and contribute to the design of systems, components or processes to meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.

Conduct investigations of broadly-defined problems; locate, search and select relevant data from codes, databases and literature, design and conduct experiments to provide valid conclusions. Select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to broadly-defined engineering problems, with an understanding of the limitations. Demonstrate understanding of the societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to engineering technology practice and solutions to broadly defined engineering problems. Understand and evaluate the sustainability and impact of engineering technology work in the solution of broadly defined engineering problems in societal and engineering contexts. Understand and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering technology practice. Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams. Communicate effectively on broadly-defined engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, by being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions. Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member or leader in a team and to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments. Recognize the need for, and have the ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in specialist technologies.
