This is a 0-credit-point subject that supports students while they are working in industry or the community for the purpose of gaining experience in the practice of engineering. It expects that students are advanced in their academic studies and working closely with engineering professionals in order to extend their understanding of the practice of professional engineering and to apply, test and further develop their technical skills. One session prior to undertaking the experience, students must enrol in 48141 Engineering Practice Preview 2.
Each student's experience is unique. Employer or host organisations are not expected to provide formal training although some may choose to do so. Instead students are required to become active learners and seek opportunities to fulfil the objectives of this experience module. Students are assisted in this process through engineering core and fields of practice subjects, and specifically through the associated Engineering Practice Review subject.
