International Engineering Practice (2007ENG)

This course gives students an immersive experience in engineering practice, through a focus on one of the most densely populated regions of the world, on the central East Coast of Japan. Through a 10 day field trip to Nagoya and Tokyo, students will visit sites including manufacturing, transportation, energy, retail, residential and academic facilities, considering each through the lens of the CDIO process (i.e. Conceive, Design, Implement, Operate) and lessons learned regarding future optimisation. The assessment for this course comprises a carbon offset report, reflection through a journal and video production, and a technical essay on a topic related to the field trip.
