Global sites

Page history last edited by Roger Hadgraft 7 years, 7 months ago

There are a number of web-based repositories which contain teaching resources which you can use or adapt.  Table 1 outlines repositories that are either specifically for engineering or have dedicated sections for engineering.  Table 2 gives details of more general repositories that also contain engineering resources

The following are useful sites for assisting faculty staff and students in various aspects of writing in engineering: the WRISE site is a combined initiative between University of Sydney and UNSW to develop students' writing in an online context.
The thesis site is a self-access site to guide students through writing an honours thesis in engineeering and science: it also has useful advice for Masters/PhD students.
The case study repoort provides a guide for staff and students in how to approach a case study.

Thanks Rosalie. I have copied these to the "Introduction to Engineering" page but perhaps we need an Engineering Communication page and/or a postgraduate page.
