This unit involves a work placement and the investigation and writing of two reports related to the agricultural/horticultural industry or enterprise experienced. Students choose the area of investigation in consultation with the unit coordinator and then are assigned an academic supervisor with expertise in the chosen area if needed. The first report takes the form of an analysis of the local industry situation based on investigation of current practice and industry placement of up to two weeks, and the second is a specialisation report based on research into an area of technical interest. Students are also required to present a seminar to fellow students and academic staff based on a combination of their findings from the work placement and research report.
