This develops professional attributes related to employability, discipline knowledge and professional networks which can contribute to their career goals in the field of biosensor technology. Students undertake approximately 100 hours of work in their placement. The specific terms and timeframe of the placement experience can be negotiated as a learning contract between the student and the host organisation in consultation with the subject coordinator. Students develop an appreciation of how education and training in the sciences is applied in a workplace by reporting on the outcomes of their internship experience.
