Content

Before students are eligible to graduate from the undergraduate Engineering courses, they must undertake a minimum cumulative total of at least 60 working days of suitable practical experience during their course program. This experience may be in an engineering workplace or laboratory, where the student will be exposed to professional engineers and engineering associates carrying out the duties. The experience need not be gained at a single organisation or in a single block of time. Students typically enrol in this unit in the trimester during which, or immediately after, the minimum cumulative total of working days of work experience is achieved.  The objective of the work experience requirement is so that students learn about real situations in engineering practice from their personal experience of participation and observation in an engineering workplace, develop or enhance a direct understanding of how organisations operate, and enhance their understanding of the engineering profession prior to graduate professional practice.

 

Assessment

Two assessment tasks (Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) questionnaire 50%, engineering work experience report 50%)
