ENG2909 Work Experience - Associate
Students will normally be completing the last year of their Associate Degree program.
Students must complete a minimum of 30 days of professional practice in their discipline field to be eligible to graduate from the Associate Degree of Engineering program. This work experience course is intended to enable students to document practical engineering and professional practice skills they acquire within the workplace. Work experience may be achieved in numerous ways ranging from roles as junior members of teams to tasks that form part of discrete engineering projects. This experience should enhance a student's ability to perform practical and project work, to be innovative, to solve problems and identify solutions, thereby developing engineering judgement. Students will prepare a career episode report (CER) of less than two pages in length in which they compare their acquired competencies to at least two Engineers Australia (EA) stage 1 competency units. A diary with regular entries must be maintained and periodically certified by the work experience provider as a true and faithful record of the hours the student has completed.
