The Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology supports the benefits of practice-orientated learning through the inclusion of internships or work experience in your course.
Experience in the workplace will allow you to integrate theory with practice and inform your further study and approach to learning. You can undertake an internship or work experience in Australia, in your home country, or in a completely new destination. You must register the internship via CareerHub to be reviewed by the Work Integrated Learning team (internships).
Internships or work experience are offered through the following options:
- Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Diploma in Professional Engineering Practice
- Bachelor of Engineering Diploma in Engineering Practice
- Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (without the Diploma)
- Bachelor of Engineering (without the Diploma)
- Master of Professional Engineering
