The course is expected to achieve dual intended outcomes for students: first, to offer a comprehensive program that contains an appropriate balance of general and specialised knowledge and skills to produce well-rounded graduates; and second, to foster a range of transferable skills that will enhance graduate employability. These include critical thinking, financial literacy, communication skills, teamwork and relevant technical skills.
Lyons College’s intention for the course is to produce graduates who know how to be critically informed on technical and general issues, and have a flexible and mature approach that allows them to adapt to the particularities of the environments they find themselves in. The knowledge and skills developed will allow students to solve complex problems and communicate suggestions that are responsive to the contexts and communities in which they work.
