Engineering Practice

Undergraduate and Postgraduate


This subject targets students enrolled in Bachelor of Engineering courses without the Diploma in Engineering Practice, assisting them to find at least a 12-week professional practice placement and to prepare for the experiential learning which results.

Designed to be an industry preparation subject, students are encouraged throughout to conduct themselves as if they are already in a professional work environment.

The subject is delivered as a series of seminars rather than in lecture-plus-tutorial format. As well as providing core knowledge, sessions incorporate skills development and other activities relevant to succeeding in a professional environment.

Students must check their availability before enrolling in this subject, as failure to attend every scheduled seminar would jeopardise both their learning and assessment success. Conversely, participating actively in all scheduled sessions permits students to take full advantage of a subject designed to enhance competence and confidence in professional practice and, ultimately, their employability as graduates.

The subject is delivered by UTS: Careers and is coordinated and owned by the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology.
