Problem-solving skills are essential to practicing engineers. Students need to develop, early in their program of studies, the personal attributes, the basic technical knowledge, information literacy, communication skills, team skills, critical and analytical skills, and reflective skills they will rely on as engineering problem solvers. This course prepares students to address the problems that they will encounter in subsequent courses and throughout their career.

The course covers the fundamental principles of engineering problem solving. It emphasises the development of skills in problem solving, critical and analytical thinking, reflective thinking, data analysis, information literacy, communication, time and resource management, and teamwork. It introduces students to the problem solving cycle and to a number of analytical tools and approaches for solving problems. Completion of a team-based project allows students to demonstrate and reinforce the skills and knowledge acquired during the course.
