Professional Engineering Skills 3 - MECH60015

Aims

This module is comprised of two parts: (a) Engineering in a commercial environment which aims to provide an awareness and basic understanding of some of the non-engineering  aspects that will be encountered by professional engineers working in a professional environment.  The main topics include: engineering finance; project management;ethics and professional responsibillity and intellectual property. (b) A literature research project which aims to develop efficient use of the extensive facilities available for research on a given subject, to develop a critical attitude to information sources, an ethical attitude to attributing them and a systematic method for citing them and to stimulate interest in a given engineering-related, technical subject by studying it in depth
