COIT13238 - Industry Work Placement

General Information

Unit Synopsis

Industry Work Placement provides you with an opportunity to reflect on the Information and Communications Technology course through a paid, supervised Work Integrated Learning (WIL) experience. You will apply the knowledge and skills that you have gained in your academic units to this work environment. You will practise your soft skills such as teamwork and communication skills in an authentic work environment. You will reflect on your strength and weaknesses in knowledge and skills, related both to your discipline and workplace experience for future improvement. You will evaluate how your university studies prepared you for the industry. Your industry supervisors will also provide you with feedback to assist this reflective process.
