Subject Description
Students research and develop their understanding of sociocultural aspects of engineering projects in the context of current and forthcoming Aboriginal Culture and Heritage legislation. They then experience working on tasks involved in negotiating agreement about actual, or potentially, contentious uses of land or other artefacts. The concepts of Western, Engineering and Indigenous 'ways of knowing' or worldviews are introduced and explored via a model demonstrating their unique and shared characteristics. This model provides a framework for analysis of the situation and development of skills for informed and productive negotiation of appropriate outcomes to complex engineering projects.

Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate understanding of the complex nature of contexts where social and engineering goals may be contentious.
2. Demonstrate ability to analyse engineering projects in terms of multiple perspectives on preferred outcomes.
3. Demonstrate ability to analyse and present information to a variety of audiences.
4. Demonstrate capacity to adequately prepare documentation relating to negotiation processes and protocols.
5. Demonstrate ability to recommend processes and protocols for negotiating outcomes for engineering projects involving Indigenous community stakeholders.
