Engineering Practicum JEE139



This unit is available to students undertaking Co-operative Education in a BE programme in NCMEH only.


Throughout JEE139 Engineering Practicum you will develop practical skills associated with the engineering profession through the help of TasTAFE. It is expected that you will learn, develop and practise the basic standards of behaviour, discipline and performance normally found in a workshop environment.

The unit will run in two blocks of 3 weeks. During one block you will undertake five TasTAFE units related to machining and tools. During the other block you will undertake a further five units relating to welding and thermal cutting. These ten units will give you a great practical understanding to be aware of throughout the remainder of your academic units and work terms.
