This unit comprises full time work place experience in an engineering based organisation for one semester. Students will gain skills in relation to application of engineering theory in the real world, and a better appreciation of the engineering profession, and will be more motivated on returning to study and better prepared to enter the work force on graduation.
At the completion of the unit students are expected to have:
- an appreciation of what engineering involves
- applied and further developed their engineering knowledge and skills in relation to their specific discipline
- greater motivation and enhanced learning ability and understanding on return to study
- developed work-readiness skills not possible through class room learning.
Students will be expected to maintain a weekly journal where they should reflect on the progress they are making in their professional and personal development. A work place experience final report must be submitted to the student's academic supervisor at the end of the semester. The report will contain a number of Engineers Australia stage two competencies, which must be commented against in relation to the student's personal development and experience. The report is expected to be no more than 750 words in length.
