Engineering industrial experience
Students enrolled in a Bachelor of Engineering course are required to undertake compulsory practical experience during the course to qualify for graduation.
This practical experience provides students with exposure to and appreciation of professional practice outside of the educational setting. Upon completion of the work experience, students are required to submit a Certificate for Industrial Experience and a reflection report.
Students are advised to view the following documents for further information on the practical requirements:
- Industrial work experience criteria
- Certificate for industrial experience
- Reflection report example.
All students undertaking work experience are covered by the University's insurance. To request a current statement of insurance cover by the University, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
