Summary
The launch of Engineering at Macquarie University, which has increased student and associated staff numbers, provides an opportunity to develop a program across several specialisations. A top-down design is being undertaken to balance engineering attributes and develop professional engineering competencies within sequences of units. The aims are a common first three semesters, ownership of program and specialisation streams by academics, and a structure in which to incorporate specialisations and service units from other departments. Development of policy on delivery modes and practices form an important aspect of this work, which aim to teach engineering by utilising engineering practices.
