ENG160 Engineering Challenge 0 (2)

The CSU Engineering course is structured very differently to other engineering programs.  This subject introduces commencing student engineers to the CSU Engineering structure and philosophy. By focussing immediately and fully on a single project that exemplifies the principles of CSU Engineering, the incoming students are familiarised with the culture and expectations of CSU Engineering, while also taking the opportunity to establish their relationships with other student engineers.
