Overview

The assessment in this course is competency-based. Students will achieve either a pass or fail for each assessment. Students need to pass all assessment items to successfully complete the course. These competency items form part of the USQ accreditation agreement with the accrediting organisation/s (where relevant).

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 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 ENG2909 may be useful later in preparing the required documentation when applying to Engineers Australia for registration as a Chartered Engineering Officer.

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.
