Work Integrated Learning (WIL)

The Science, Engineering and Built Environment Work Integrated Learning Program (WIL) enables you to incorporate an industry work placement for credit towards your degree.

Industry placements play a valuable role in preparing you for graduate employment and increase your employability.

The placements give you the opportunity to gain discipline specific industry exposure through two types of WIL placements: Industry Based Learning (IBL) or an Internship.

You should consider a WIL placement to:

  • bridge the gap between the theory and practice in your discipline
  • apply and consolidate knowledge gained in your course
  • gain discipline specific industry exposure
  • help develop good work practices
  • experience work place culture
  • explore career options relevant to your discipline
  • help develop a professional network
industry based learning


WIL placements are offered as Faculty level elective units and are credited to your degree. Students must enrol in and satisfactorily complete the 0 credit point unit, STP010 Introduction to Work Placements, to be eligible to enrol in a WIL program Internship unit or WIL program IBL unit*. Both IBL and internship units attract normal university fees.

* Undergraduate students only.
