Before students will be deemed eligible to graduate from the Bachelor of Engineering or Bachelor of Technology they must obtain an aggregate of at least 12 weeks (BE) or 8 weeks (BTech) of suitable practical experience during their 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 will be expected to record their experiences in a logbook and to provide a written report detailing their impressions and learning outcomes gained during their work experience. The acceptability or otherwise of the employment experience, and the period of that type of experience that may be credited will be determined by the unit chair in consultation with the representative of the relevant academic management group. This unit will enable students to: learn about real situations in engineering practice via personal experience of an engineering workplace, develop a direct understanding of how organisations operate, increase awareness of the nature of the engineering profession.
