Mapping of Courses to Programme Outcomes Matrix (Curriculum Revision 2021)

Complex Engineering Problems (WP)

ATTRIBUTEComplex Engineering Problems have characteristic WP1 and some or all of WP2 to WP7
Depth of Knowledge RequiredWP1: Can’t be resolved without in-depth engineering knowledge at the level of one or more of WK3, WK4, WK5, WK6 or WK8 which allows a fundamentals-based, first principles analytical approach
Range of Conflicting RequirementsWP2: Involve wide-ranging or conflicting technical, engineering and other issues
Depth of Analysis RequiredWP3: Have no obvious solution and require abstract thinking,
originality in analysis to formulate suitable models
Familiarity of IssuesWP4: Involve infrequently encountered issues
Extent of Applicable CodesWP5: Are outside problems encompassed by standards and codes of practice for professional engineering
Extent of Stakeholder Involvement and Conflicting RequirementsWP6: Involve diverse groups of stakeholders with widely varying needs
InterdependenceWP 7: Are high level problems including many component parts or sub-problems
In addition, in the context of the Professional Competencies
ConsequencesEP1: Have significant consequences in a range of contexts
JudgementEP2: Require judgement in decision making.

Complex Engineering Activities (EA)

ATTRIBUTEComplex Activities
PreambleComplex activities means (engineering) activities or projects that have some or all of the following characteristics:
Range of resourcesEA1: Involve the use of diverse resources (and for this purpose resources includes people, money, equipment, materials, information and technologies)
Level of interactionsEA2: Require resolution of significant problems arising from interactions between wide-ranging or conflicting technical, engineering or other issues
InnovationEA3: Involve creative use of engineering principles and research-based knowledge in novel ways.
Consequences to society and the environmentEA4: Have significant consequences in a range of contexts, characterized by difficulty of prediction and mitigation
FamiliarityEA5: Can extend beyond previous experiences by applying principles-based approaches
