Event description


ENGG1100, Introduction to Engineering Design, has been specifically designed to enable students to experience what it is to be an engineer. In teams of six, students meet each week to tackle a multi-disciplinary design-prototype-build project and apply the engineering design and management processes that they are learning through active lectures and a flipped classroom. ENGG1100 is designed to welcome students to the community of engineering practice, give them tools and skills to use in their degree program and in industry, and to stimulate their thinking about professional issues that they will face as a graduate engineer.

Students attend lectures, workshops, seminar sessions and project session each week. Visitors are welcome to attend any of the lectures or workshops to see some of the teaching and learning strategies being used in this course. The large scale active learning sessions with 600 students in the UQ Centre are open to observers on a Monday, or you could visit one of the back to back lectures on a Wednesday.

Associate Professors Lydia Kavanagh and Carl Reidsema lead a teaching team of approximately 70 staff to deliver ENG1100. Lydia is the Director of First Year Engineering and Carl is the EAIT Director of Teaching and Learning. Both coordinators provide innovative leadership with initiatives including: the Special Interest Group in Engineering Education (SIGEE), the PETS (Proactively Ensuring Team Success) process, the Flipped classroom project, and Learning pathway project. They have both received awards at the institutional and national level for teaching excellence and in 2017 Lydia became a Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

This course has required a heavy investment in technology enabled learning. For more information please visit the eLIPSE Centre Web page:
