This unit provides you with the opportunity to apply skills and knowledge developed in your academic course to engineering practice. This unit will also develop new engineering practice skills and knowledge. You will document and reflect on work activities and relate them to Engineers Australia's Stage 1 Competency Standards and develop a strategic approach to personal growth in the workplace. You are required to undertake a minimum of 300 hours of work placement, which may require relocation of accommodation to suit the placement. Students should contact the unit coordinator prior to enrolment in this unit to discuss placement 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).
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 graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).
