ENG580 Performance Planning & Review - Professional Engineer (4)

In this subject, students engage in reflective management of their learning and professional performance.  They plan their workload, negotiating a learning contract between themselves and their industry placement employer.  Students then use evidence-based reflection processes to determine if they have met their goals, adjusting their professional practice where necessary.  This subject also includes a summative evaluation including feedback from industry placement supervisors.  The expectations for this subject are that the student should be performing at the level of a Professional Engineer.
