Qualifications are made up of courses. Some universities call these papers. Each course is numbered using six digits.
The fourth number of the course code shows the level of the course. For example, in course 219206, the fourth number is a 2, so it is a 200-level course (usually studied in the second year of full-time study).
Each course is worth a number of credits. You combine courses (credits) to meet the total number of credits needed for your qualification.
Course planning information
To pass the course students must achieve at least 40% in all assessment components.
You need to complete the above course or courses before moving onto this one.
General progression requirementsYou must complete at least 45 credits from 200-level before enrolling in 300-level courses.
What you will learn. Knowledge, skills and attitudes you’ll be able to show as a result of successfully finishing this course.
- 1 Apply social constraints and interactions to technological design. These include ethics, appropriate technology, health and safety (e.g. HAZOP) and legal implications including Treaty of Waitangi obligations, liability and duty of care.
- 2 Apply environmental constraints and interactions to technological design. These include discharge of pollutants to air and water; noise; climate change; depletion of physical and energy resources; environmental law and regulation.
- 3 Apply principles of life cycle thinking and life cycle analysis as a guide to design refinement.
- 4 Specify, design, prototype and develop a manufacturing scale-up proposal of a complex engineering system that is of acceptable quality, fit for purpose and fulfills the 'life cycle' obligations.
- 5 Employ CAD and engineering simulation software to analyse and design critical components of the system under consideration.
Learning outcomes can change before the start of the semester you are studying the course in.
