Each Engineering student within the faculty of Applied Science is required in their third or fourth year to complete a 3-credit Engineering Economics course. This course is often the first exposure into the world of financial and economic analysis, arguably one of the most critical components of an engineer’s profession. Currently each of the six engineering departments develop and deliver a separate Engineering Economics course, and it is estimated that at least 50% of each course share a commonality across all disciplines. The other 50% of course material is taught using examples from a specific field of engineering.
It is the aim of this project to consolidate the proportion of commonly shared course materials into a central on-line resource, whilst simultaneously developing and providing the navigation to the complementary subject specific learning material. This will allow the development of best practice learning resources, access to a broader multidisciplinary perspective, avoid duplication of effort, and provide the inherent benefit of electronically accessible course material.
