Additional Administrative Information for Engineering Students

Industry Experience

The professional Engineering body, Engineers Australia, requires that students enrolled in an accredited Engineering program, complete 12 weeks of appropriate work experience in order to be eligible to graduate with an Engineering qualification. It is recommended that students complete this compulsory component prior to commencement of their final year of studies. However, this requirement must be completed prior to the conclusion of final year studies in order for students to be eligible to graduate in the graduation ceremony following immediately after the end of that semester.

Students are encouraged to join Engineers Australia. Student membership is free, and application forms are available outside the School Secretary's office. "Membership of Engineers Australia provides the engineering community with a host of benefits, which will assist them throughout their career", including a "Vacation Employment Handbook", providing details of over 80 companies who are willing to provide work experience to engineering students.

Students should submit a Industry Experience Report at the completion of work experience to the 4002ENG Industry Experience convenor. Students need to enrol in this 0CP course for the semester in which they submit the report. Report/s should be submitted within six months of the industry experience being undertaken. Any industry experience report/s submitted at a later stage, may not be considered as part of the 12-week requirement. Industry experience can be undertaken in several parts. A template for the report and form for the industry supervisor is available.

Students undertaking unpaid industry experience, or community placement as a program/course requirement and/or to gain experience in their field of study, are covered by the University Public Liability and Personal Accident Insurance. This cover does not extend to incidents involving motor vehicles. If a student receives any form of gratuity or reward for the work experience or community placement undertaken, then the University insurance program will not extend to that student.

To organise University Public Liability and Personal Accident Insurance cover, please submit an "Approval to Undertake Work Experience/Community Placement form ” , to Student Administration.
