Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities


Course Description

This course requires students to obtain work experience in a professional workplace under the supervision of a practising professional engineer.

Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

This course develops all three of the program’s Graduate Capabilities: Technical competence, Integrative perspective and Professional skills through (at least):

  • performing a range of analytical tasks appropriate to engineering as a whole;
  • demonstrating appropriate understanding of key scientific and other concepts underpinning engineering as a whole;
  • demonstrating ability to utilise a range of solution strategies and methodologies, and ability to select the most appropriate strategy for different problems;
  • demonstrating systems thinking;
  • analysing requirements and constraints;
  • written forms of communication appropriate to different tasks and audiences;
  • oral communication for different tasks and audiences;
  • working effectively within diverse teams;
  • demonstrating ability and attitude appropriate to self-directed learning;
  • reflecting on personal experience and learn from it to improve future practice.

After completing the work experience requirement, you will:

  • have been exposed to the professional engineering workplace;
  • be able to reflect upon the experience int he context of your future professional career;
  • be better prepared to enter the professional workplace following your graduation.

Overview of Learning Activities

This course requires you to obtain between 6 and 12 weeks of work experience in the professional engineering workplace - this is defined as being supervised by a professional engineer and undertaking supervised work typical of that expected of a graduate engineer.  The work experience need not be in the aerospace environment: the key learning activity is that of being in the professional engineering workplace.

Overview of Learning Resources

There are no formal learning resources.  You are expected to obtain the work placement yourself.  Advice is available on suitability of the placement.

Overview of Assessment

Assessment consists of a reflective report.
