Engineering Studies

2 unit course

Course Summary

Engineering Studies prepares students to formulate problems, provide solutions and integrate technical understanding to the world around them. Engineering as a profession has a duty to take responsible approaches to wealth creation, be ethical in its practices, and promote sustainability. With such key responsibilities, communication, synthesis and analysis of information, management skills and teamwork are vital. We hope that by developing an understanding of the built world, students will further appreciate the created world and develop greater awe of their Creator.
