Industry-based Learning

Robotical engineering student

Industry-based Learning (IBL) involves students working full-time in industry as part of their degree program. The IBL placement is incorporated into a Faculty unit as an elective and credited to the degree.

The Faculty of Science & Technology offers the FaST Industry-Based learning (IBL) Program, which has been taken up by a wide range of employers and organisations

A majority of placements are on a full-time paid basis but there are some part-time positions. Typically, students will not undertake any study during a full-time IBL placement but it may be possible to complete an on-line unit.

Placement organisations are required to assign an industry supervisor and a mentor for the student for the duration of the placement. The student will also be assigned an academic supervisor who will visit the student during the placement.
