Graduate Attributes

Bachelor of Engineering: Graduate Attributes

1(a) Understands the role of engineers and their responsibility to society by demonstrating an understanding of the social, cultural and environmental responsibilities and the need for lifelong learning and professional development. (IPENZ programme outcomes WA6, WA7, WA8 & WA12, ITP graduate attributes 8, 9 & 10)

1(b) Understands and applies project and business management, recognising and using the appropriate project and business management principles and tools for complex engineering problems. (IPENZ programme outcome WA11, ITP graduate attribute 6)

2(a) Functions effectively in a team by working co-operatively with the capacity to become a leader or manager. (IPENZ programme outcome WA9, ITP graduate attribute 6)

2(b) Communicates effectively, comprehending and writing effective reports and design documentation, summarizing information, making effective oral presentations and giving and receiving clear oral instructions. (IPENZ programme outcome WA10, ITP graduate attribute 7)

3(a) Understands and applies the mathematical and engineering sciences to one or more of the broad, general engineering disciplines. (IPENZ programme outcome WA1, ITP graduate attribute 3)

3(b) Can synthesise and demonstrate the efficacy of solutions to part or all of complex engineering problems. (IPENZ programme outcomes WA3, WA4, ITP graduate attribute 4)

3(c) Formulates and solves models that predict the behaviour of part or all of complex engineering systems, using first principles of the fundamental engineering sciences and mathematics. (IPENZ programme outcome WA2, ITP graduate attribute 2)

3(d) Recognises when further information is needed and is able to find it by identifying, evaluating and drawing conclusions from all pertinent sources of information, and by designing and carrying out experiments. (IPENZ programme outcome WA2, ITP graduate attribute 3)

3(e) Understands the accepted methods of dealing with uncertainty and the limitations of the applicability of methods of design and analysis and identifies, evaluates and manages the physical risks in complex engineering problems. (IPENZ programme outcomes WA3 & WA4, ITP graduate attributes 3 & 4)

3(f) Demonstrates competence in the practical art of engineering in their area of specialisation by showing in design an understanding of the practical methods for the construction and maintenance of engineering products, and using modern calculation and design tools competently for complex engineering problems. (IPENZ programme outcome WA5, ITP graduate attribute 5)
