This course focuses on a range of generic, transferable skills, rather than specific technical skills. Most activities are not discipline-specific and activities include consulting with supervising staff, a lecture and attendance at the annual "Project Conference" in which ENG4903 Professional Practice 2 students present their completed project work to other students, staff and members of various professions. Students will also participate in, and report on, a range of laboratory sessions, demonstrations, seminars and workshops provided by staff of the Faculty, the wider university and by industry representatives. Students are required to choose and self-organise the completion of similar activities off campus. These professional development activities seek to provide the student with insights into the "cutting edge" of current engineering and surveying practice.

This course contains a mandatory residential school for both external and on-campus students.
