In 2011, Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism commissioned the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) to conduct a small project to identify attributes and associated learning outcomes required by engineering graduates to work effectively on energy efficiency. RET then commissioned QUT, with in-kind support from Engineers Australia, to conduct consultation to obtain industry perspectives on the findings of its previous work. This document reports on that consultation process, which:

  • engaged with industry to identify key discipline-specific skills and competencies
  • engaged with engineering educators to identify graduate attributes and associated learning outcomes in order to deliver the skills and competences identified
  • explored how links between industry and universities can be strengthened to support graduate learning outcomes that meet industry needs
