Back to top

Practical experience

To be eligible to graduate from the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours), students must obtain an aggregate of at least 60 days of suitable work experience during their program. This experience may be in an engineering office or laboratory where the student would be working principally with professional engineers and engineering associates. It may, however, be preferable for students to spend some time in field or factory activities to gain insight into industrial practice and to see what is involved in converting designs into finished products. Students are required to enrol in ENG4909 Work Experience - Professional in the latter part of their program and keep a record of appropriate experience as specified in the Course Specification. The work experience is to be endorsed by an appropriate person in the organisation providing the experience and submitted to the examiner. The student must meet all costs associated with the acquisition of work experience to satisfy this requirement. The record of work experience must be made available for perusal by the Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences upon request. The acceptability or otherwise of employment experience, and the period of that type of experience that may be credited towards the 60 days, will be determined by the Examiner of ENG4909 Work Experience - Professional.

Credit or exemptions for ENG4909 Work Experience - Professional will not normally be considered.

Practice courses are zero unit courses that may be undertaken in either on-campus or external mode and the final grades available are Pass (P)/Fail (F) only. They are a compulsory part of the program and do not attract a student contribution charge for Australian residents or a tuition fee for international students. The recommended enrolment schedule for Practice courses is shown in the Recommended Enrolment Pattern for the program in this Handbook.

External students must attend a number of residential schools during their program to obtain experience in practical and professional activities appropriate to the program. The residential schools are included in Practice courses which are conducted in Semester 3 or during the recess periods. The dates for each residential school Practice course are shown in the Residential School Schedule in this Handbook and external students should ensure they are able to attend the residential school prior to enrolling in a Practice course. Personal protective equipment is compulsory in many engineering, construction and spatial science laboratories, students should confirm the requirements before attending residential schools for Practice courses.

Students who enrol in on-campus mode for Practice courses normally undertake a series of weekly activities and/or attend a compulsory residential school.

ENG3902 Professional Practice 1 and ENG4110 Engineering Research Methodology are to be studied in the student's penultimate year. Upon completion of ENG3902 Professional Practice 1, students must study ENG4111 Research Project Part 1 , ENG4112 Research Project Part 2 and ENG4903 Professional Practice 2 in the same academic year.

Footnotes
^^ENG1901 Engineering Practice 1 is the first in a series of Practice courses designed to enable students to acquire engineering and professional practice skills, including practical and teamwork skills, problem solving and engineering judgement. It is designed principally to cater for the needs of recent school leavers and those lacking any significant experience of the engineering workforce. Students who have a trade certificate and who have been employed in the engineering industry for some time may be able to claim exemption from the course.
^CHE1110 Chemistry 1 has a compulsory residential school requirement in External mode.
