School or Department : School of Engineering
Student contribution band : Band 2
Grading basis : Graded
Version produced : 23 May 2022


Pre-requisite: (ENG8300 and ENG8311) or (ENG8001 and Students must be enrolled in the following program: MAEN)


Work Integrated Learning allows experienced technologists, engineers and other professionals to draw on their industrial practice to demonstrate their achievement of many of the required graduate attributes and capabilities, both generic and technical. This course is designed to enable students to demonstrate key learning objectives by documenting the knowledge and skills they have gained in the workplace supported by targeted research activities. Students will demonstrate independent and professional application of theory and engineering skills and knowledge by writing reports their industrial project thesis covering industrial or work- related projects. The thesis content shall demonstrate Engineers Australia Stage 1 competencies, elements and indicators of attainment; but specifically for MEPR program students shall also identify and demonstrate the specific nominated five (5) Engineers Australia Stage 2 professional competency demonstration and demonstrate equivalency to Engineers Australia’s engineering competency claims (ECCs). The thesis documentation, plus oral technical seminar or enterprise technical pitch presentation includes details of the application of theory, synthesis and/or innovation in their industry knowledge develop with appropriate evaluation and background research at a professional engineering level.

This course provides a vehicle for students to demonstrate their application of theoretical knowledge to innovate a solution of an engineering problem or as part of a larger project which is relevant to their workplace and professional engineering career and strand discipline. With appropriate supervision, the student will further develop skills in documenting and sharing their contribution spanning both the technical and non-technical dimensions of engineering and spatial science at the professional level. Students are expected to produce an accurate and detailed written account of their work supported by appropriate background information and literature as appropriate to the project and to demonstrate their knowledge and application of theory at a professional engineering level of application.
