Unit Synopsis

As a student enrolled in Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and Diploma of Professional Practice (Co-op Engineering), you will apply skills and knowledge developed in the academic course to engineering practice in an industry-based, Work Integrated Learning (WIL) context. You will identify and plan work placement objectives, document technical work practices and processes, and prepare a portfolio detailing your personal and professional growth in an industry-based engineering position. Note that you are required to undertake a minimum of 24 weeks of paid or unpaid work placement that may require relocation of accommodation to suit their employment.

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.

Source: Student Feedback 'Have your Say'
Feedback
More contact while on placement would be appreciated
Recommendation
More regular contact to be implemented.
Action Taken
Industry visits were carried out with Francis Edwards to establish contact with the student and his/her supervisor
Source: Moodle student feedback survey
Feedback
Assessment feedback should be improved
Recommendation
The assessment submission will be distributed throughout the term rather than one single submission at the end of the term. This will increase student focus towards unit requirements. It will also provide a chance for the coordinator to give feedback on some assessments during the term.
Action Taken
Nil.
