We are seeking stakeholder feedback on recommendations 1, 2 and 3 of the “Engineering design task force report”. The objectives of the consultation are to:
- Inform stakeholders of an alternate definition of engineering design (and therefore revisions to the Design Graduate Attribute, Criterion 188.8.131.52, and development of a new interpretive statement on engineering design) is being considered.
- Investigate stakeholder reaction to the report recommendations.
- Consolidate and synthesize stakeholder feedback with the objective of putting forward a list of recommendations for implementation.
- Identify barriers to change if the report recommendations are adopted.
- Develop a reasonable implementation plan that accommodates the diverse viewpoints of stakeholders.
We will be consulting with stakeholders between October 1 and December 4, 2020.
