Synopsis

Students must complete a minimum of 60 days of professional practice in their discipline or closely related field to be eligible to graduate from the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) 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 entries in their ePortfolio reflecting on how their work experience has contributed to the development of USQ Graduate Capabilities relevant to their engineering major. 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.

The ePortfolio prepared for ENG4909 may be useful later in preparing the required documentation when applying to Engineers Australia for registration as a Chartered Professional Engineer.

Students are advised to contact the engineering placements team via engineering.placements@usq.edu.au if they have any questions about the process of finding and gaining approval for a placement.

Both on-campus and external students will be required to submit their ePortfolio and work diary electronically for review and assessment by the due date to permit timely assessment.
