This is the second of two courses which address the work undertaken, the performance required, and responsibilities borne by the practices of professional engineering and spatial science. As the final practice course in several programs, this course is particularly concerned with interaction with the professions at large. it is also concerned with developing an awareness of professional ethics.

The assessment in this course is competency-based. Students will achieve either a pass or fail for each assessment. Students need to pass all assessment items to successfully complete the course. These competency items form part of the UniSQ accreditation agreement with the accrediting organisation/s (where relevant).

A major part of all engineering and spatial science project work is the appropriate communication of the outcome. This course provides guidance and experience in both verbal (seminar) and written reporting skills and is undertaken to complement the final year project courses at of the degree. The presentation of a major seminar on the work undertaken during the final year project is a requirement for the completion of this course.
