Students who achieve a Band 1 result are required to undertake 42015 Engineering Practice in an Australian Context instead of this subject. Students who achieve a Band 2 or 3 result may continue with this subject.


This subject provides students with the opportunities to collaborate with their peers and the subject's teaching staff, to explore the social practices involved in seeking, obtaining, contributing to and learning from an engineering job or internship. Students are guided in the curation of an e-portfolio that documents their growing understanding of the practices necessary for seeking and obtaining a professional engineering experience. The e-portfolios also document the student's growing capabilities to contribute to a workplace, and to engage in workplace learning focusing particularly on the interpersonal and communication capabilities that may be required in engineering workplaces.
