This course is a comprehensive preparation for careers in the professional practice of engineering. Students learn to deal with complex systems and manage large-scale projects using the most appropriate emerging technologies. Taking a trans-disciplinary approach, Creative Intelligence and Innovation utilises multiple perspectives from diverse fields, integrating a range of industry experiences, real-world projects and self-initiated proposals, equipping graduates to address the wicked problems, complex challenges and untapped opportunities in today's world. This course adopts a practice-based approach to engineering education and the course content is a mix of theory and practice. As well as gaining strong technical skills in engineering, students gain skills in business analysis, problem solving, teamwork and communication. Employers look for graduates with industry experience and, in this course, students are exposed to real engineering problems in their coursework as well as completing 12 weeks' work experience. Interaction between work experience and academic curriculum is very strong. By focusing on the high-level conceptual thinking and problem-solving practices that lead to the development of innovative, creative and entrepreneurial outcomes, students of the combined degree also gain leading edge capabilities that are highly valued in the globalised world, including dealing with critical and creative thinking, invention, complexity, innovation, future scenario building and entrepreneurship, and the ability to work on their own, across and between other disciplines. These creative intelligence competencies enable graduates to navigate across a rapidly accelerating world of change.
Students must complete 270 credit points, comprising 48 credit points of engineering core subjects, 120 credit points of engineering major, 6 credit points of professional engineering practice and 96 credit points in creative intelligence and innovation. The Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation is not offered as a separate degree, but is completed only in combination with the professional degree program. Students are required to obtain the equivalent of at least 12 weeks' exposure to professional engineering practice, preferably outside the university environment. Within the final year of the Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation, students can undertake between 6 and 12 credit points of internship (work experience) that relates to innovation within their research, career development, or core degree specialisations.
