ENEP12010 - Industry Practice 2

General Information

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 to Engineers Australia Stage 2 Competency Standards, and prepare a portfolio detailing your personal and professional growth in an industry-based engineering position. Note that students 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.

Attendance Requirements

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).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 12-credit Undergraduate 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.

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: Self Reflection, Discussion with other faculty members
Feedback
Include some intermediate assessment items apart from portfolio to keep the students involved in the unit.
Recommendation
Submissions like company information, placement objectives should be added as mandatory submissions during the term to help students start collating portfolio information in a timely manner.
Action Taken
We have included a requirement for students to submit work samples in their Portfolio assessment.
Source: Unit coordinator self reflection
Feedback
The unit assessments will be aligned with ENEP11006 Industry Practice 1.
Recommendation
Implement changes recommended from approved UUCP for Term 2, 2019.
Action Taken
Nil.
Unit learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:

  1. Document work placement position requirements, objectives and plan
  2. Apply skills and knowledge developed in the academic course to engineering practice within an organisation
  3. Document engineering work practices and processes in a professional manner
  4. Critically analyse work tasks and map these to Engineers Australia Stage 2 Competency Standards
  5. Develop and apply engineering practice skills and knowledge to complement the skills and knowledge developed in the course
  6. Review and assess personal and professional development achieved during the work placement.
