In this course, the student engages in assignments and workshops to develop the student's ability to discern the relevant factors and design accordingly, to interact within a design team, and to communicate ideas and concepts through oral and written presentation. An essential skill for the design engineer is to be able to work across disciplines and therefore they often must "learn" new specialisations. In this course the student is introduced to several specialist topics not covered elsewhere in their course of study. This is a senior course and it is assumed that the student has the maturity, knowledge, and skills base commensurate with having completed the first two years of their undergraduate course.
