In the final year of your studies you'll undertake a major project that is either industry-based or simulates an industrial situation.
Before graduating from this degree, you are strongly encouraged to complete up to 12 weeks of engineering industry experience. This allows you to gain first-hand experience in an engineering practice environment under the supervision of a practising professional engineer. The nature and timing of this engineering experience can take a range of forms.
You may choose to undertake a six-month or one-year industry placement position, commencing in the middle or at the end of your third year in either Australia or overseas with associated academic credit. You'll gain valuable industrial experience that may lead to a full-time job upon completion of the degree. This optional industry placement may lengthen the time needed to graduate by six or 12 months.
