This unit of study will give students a rich 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 and extends over several months, with the student essentially being engaged full-time on the project at the industrial site. Previous students have been placed with industries in areas including the mining industry, oil and gas processing, plastic and paint manufacture, food production, manufacturing and so on. Students will learn from this experience the following essential engineering skills: how to examine published and experimental data, set objectives, organise a program of work, and analyse results and evaluate these in relation to existing knowledge. Presentation skills will also be developed, which are highly relevant to many branches of engineering activity.
Refer to the assessment table in the unit outline.
Enrollment by permission only. The candidate will be selected by interview and at the discretion of the Head of School. For students whose degree includes ENGG4000, CHNG4203 counts in place of this unit. Students whose degree includes the Professional Engagement Program must enrol in all PEP units. CHNG4203 will count toward the Engineering Work requirement of ENGP3000.
