Integrated design of complex civil engineering projects; professional and teamwork analysis; economic, environmental, and bicultural issues; life-long learning.
Integrated Natural Resources Engineering Design is an essential course in your natural resources engineering education. Unlike the majority of your lecture courses that focus on providing you with the fundamentals of engineering science, whether it be in geomechanics, transportation, materials, hydrology or any of the other disciplines covered in your programme, Integrated Design aims to provide you with a realistic design experience, where only little new knowledge is taught and the focus is on application of knowledge and development of professional design skills.
At the conclusion of this course, students will be able to:Identify constraints and requirements given a client-focused design brief (including appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations).Identify information requirements and select appropriate information from open literature.Creatively develop and then evaluate systematically alternative solutions in all relevant contexts (e.g. economic, aesthetic, health and safety, environmental, cultural, and ethical).Undertake analysis to confirm robustness of a proposed solution.Describe the preferred solution in a coherent written form, with appropriate client focus, and defend those findings orally.Understand how an engineer functions effectively within a diverse design team in a multi-disciplinary setting. Apply engineering management principles (e.g. project timeline) to a design project.Apply economic decision-analysis processes (e.g. present value analysis, economic risk evaluation) to a design project.Demonstrate an ability to be bi-culturally competent and confident in a project typical for natural resources engineers.Recognise the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in, independent learning in the broadest context of technological change.
This course will provide students with an opportunity to develop the Graduate Attributes specified below:
Employable, innovative and enterprising
Students will develop key skills and attributes sought by employers that can be used in a range of applications.
Biculturally competent and confident
Students will be aware of and understand the nature of biculturalism in Aotearoa New Zealand, and its relevance to their area of study and/or their degree.
Engaged with the community
Students will have observed and understood a culture within a community by reflecting on their own performance and experiences within that community.
