Topic description

This topic comprises at least 12 weeks of work experience as approved by the topic co-ordinator. Students must undertake their engineering work experience in an appropriate field of study.

Educational aims

This topic aims to provide work experience of at least 12 weeks in duration in a real industrial environment for preparing students for their future role as professional engineers.

Expected learning outcomes
On completion of this topic you will be expected to be able to:

  1. Evaluate the effectiveness of the structure, operation and responsibilities, and business culture of a company or organisation
  2. Contribute to technical projects as an individual or team member
  3. Contribute to the management of team processes as appropriate

  5. Synthesize and apply skills and knowledge already acquired in their course
  6. Evaluate the responsibilities, roles, attitudes, values, priorities, judgement and work methods of practising professional engineers in industry
  7. Appreciate the overall manner in which engineering is practised and managed and the role of the team in engineering

Key dates and timetable

(1), (2)

Each class is numbered in brackets.
Where more than one class is offered, students normally attend only one.

Classes are held weekly unless otherwise indicated.


If you are enrolled for this topic, but all classes for one of the activities (eg tutorials) are full,
contact your College Office for assistance. Full classes frequently occur near the start of semester.

Students may still enrol in topics with full classes as more places will be made available as needed.

If this padlock appears next to an activity name (eg Lecture), then class registration is closed for this activity.

Class registration normally closes at the end of week 2 of each semester.

Classes in a stream are grouped so that the same students attend all classes in that stream.
Registration in the stream will result in registration in all classes.
  Unless otherwise advised, classes are not held during semester breaks or on public holidays.
