An internship provides you with real project management experience while working with an employer (work-integrated learning). You will integrate knowledge and skills gained while studying your discipline units, with their application in the workplace to further develop your project management competencies. You will document and reflect on your learning experiences and on the employer's contribution to your professional development.
Pre-requisites or Co-requisites
Pre-requisites: You must have completed all units in your course except this one and passed all those units on the first attempt. If you do not pass all prior units on the first attempt, you will not be eligible to enrol in this unit and therefore you must either enrol in 'Research Stream' units or 'Practicum Stream' units. Anti-requisites: If you have completed any units from the 'Research Stream' or 'Practicum Stream' you cannot enrol in this unit.
Important note: Students enrolled in a subsequent unit who failed their pre-requisite unit, should drop the subsequent unit before the census date or within 10 working days of Fail grade notification. Students who do not drop the unit in this timeframe cannot later drop the unit without academic and financial liability. See details in the Assessment Policy and Procedure (Higher Education Coursework).
Offerings For Term 2 - 2023
All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).
Recommended Student Time Commitment
Each 12-credit Postgraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 25 hours of study per week, making a total of 300 hours for the unit.
This is a pass/fail (non-graded) unit. To pass the unit, you must pass all of the individual assessment tasks shown in the table above.

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses
Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.
Feedback from SUTE
The unit offers a valuable opportunity to practice real-life experiences which shaped the students' learning.
Keep the good practice by offering the students the opportunity to have the internship within relevant host companies.
Feedback from SUTE
The unit gives the students the opportunity to experience the working culture on an international platform. It allowed the students to develop other skills (eg: IT skills, stress management, communications etc) apart from Project management skills.
Ensure that the students are making progress in their internship and the allocated tasks meet their expectations.
Feedback from SUTE/Email
The unit seems to require lots of paperwork/ assessment to complete which takes extra effort.
A unit update proposal to review and update the assessment tasks as well as the unit learning outcomes is deemed necessary since the unit is now being part of the Master of Construction Management course.
