ENG4909 Work Experience - Professional
Students will normally be completing the last year of their Bachelor Degree program.
Students must complete a minimum of 60 days of professional practice in their discipline field to be eligible to graduate from the Bachelor 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 reflect on their acquired competencies and how they relate to at least four Engineers Australia (EA) requirements for level 1 certification. 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.
