Students are required to take this course when they first enrol in the Master of Engineering Practice program. During this course students will prepare a portfolio consisting of a number of significant written works. The major activity in this course requires students to undertake a self-assessment of their existing attributes and capabilities against those required for the program. They will then be required to produce a Pathway to Graduation Plan in which they will plan the content of the Workplace Portfolio and Industrial Project courses that they will use to demonstrate their existing attributes and capabilities, and the Technical courses they will undertake in the program to enable them to satisfy the remaining attribute and capability requirements. The second component of the course requires students to write Engineering Competency Claims that demonstrate their achievement of one or more of the attributes or capabilities. The information in an Engineering Competency Claims must be verified and endorsed by a professional engineer. Normally there will be a considerable amount of negotiation between the examiner and the student before the final versions of the Pathway to Graduation Plan and the other portfolio documents are submitted.
