Work Placement ENG700

Hobart

Introduction

This unit of study aims build on the first placement unit to provide you with practical engineering experience in an environment outside the University and improve your awareness of the issues associated with professional practice. In so doing, it will ensure your perceptions of engineering during your studies develop alongside the realities of practice. This final placement unit will provide the opportunity for you to reflect on yours studies to date and how they translate to real world practice.
