This is the second of two courses which address the work undertaken, the performance required and responsibilities borne by the practices of professional engineering and spatial science. As the final practice course in the Bachelor of Engineering and Bachelor of Spatial Science, this course is particularly concerned with interaction with the professions at large. It is also concerned with developing an awareness of professional ethics. A major part of all engineering and spatial science project work is the appropriate communication of the outcome. This course provides guidance and experience in both verbal (seminar) and written reporting skills and is undertaken to complement the courses ENG4111 Research Project Part 1 and ENG4112 Research Project Part 2 or ENG8411 Masters Dissertation B & ENG8412 Masters Dissertation C in the final year of the degree. The presentation of a major seminar on the work undertaken during the final year project is a requirement for the completion of this course.

This course contains a mandatory residential school for both external and on-campus students. It also includes mandatory on-campus workshop sessions for on-campus students.
