ENGG1200 (Engineering Modelling & Problem Solving) is a compulsory foundation course for all UQ engineering students and introduces students to engineering problem solving and the properties and behaviours of engineering materials in design.

A significant learning component of the course is built around a major team project. You will work on this project in a team of six to eight students. You will find out much more about the team project once the semester starts.

Project 2020: Water Treatment and Control

A client proposes building an intensive goat farm in Townsville for meat and/ or dairy production.  The farm is adjacent to the Black River, which flows to the ocean along the Great Barrier Reef.  The client wants to ensure the farm run-off to the ocean meets or exceeds the current best practice for water quality, particularly regarding nutrient levels and water temperature.  These factors are known to contribute to coral bleaching events in recent years in the area.

Students will be preparing a proof-of-concept model for the required water treatment process.  The model will consider the physical and virtual aspects of water treatment, specifically water flow splitting, pump selection, mixing, and optimised temperature control.

The project is suitable for all first year students and has applications beyond this specific project context, as it develops skills used in all disciplines of engineering.
