Industrial Project (ELEC4714)

UNIT OF STUDY

Students spend 6 months at an industrial placement working on a major engineering project relevant to their engineering stream. This is a 24 credit point unit, which may be undertaken as an alternative to ELEC4702 Practical Experience, ELEC4712/4713 Honours Thesis A & B, and two recommended electives. This unit of study gives students experience in carrying out a major project within an industrial environment, and in preparing and presenting detailed technical reports (both oral and written) on their work. The project is carried out under joint University/industry supervision, with the student essentially being engaged full time on the project at the industrial site.
