Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

This is a specialism course for the AIMM, and has no prerequisite courses. Assumed knowledge and capabilities are commensurate with entry into the AIMM, as well as either AERO 2304 or AERO 2305 as pre- or co-requisites.

Course Description

This course includes a Work Integrated Learning experience in which your knowledge and skills will be applied and assessed in a real workplace context. This will help you develop the competencies required to become a professional engineer chartered by Washington Accord signatories such as Engineers Australia, Hong Kong Institution of Engineers, and the National Board of Accreditation (India). It is your task to find your engineering work placement/internship position. This task helps you develop a critical career skill: to identify suitable roles and perform well in the application process. You have assessments to complete while you are on your placement. You will write about workplace and professional issues and practices during your placement that will be reviewed by your RMIT supervisor. These will develop your skills to reflect on your success and challenges in the workplace, and to help you to learn from your experience. You will also complete post-placement assessment. These will help you to reflect on the overall learning outcomes from your placement, to identify evidence of your skills and areas for further development. This is a foundation skill for writing outstanding cover letters, a critical part of successful job seeking. Professional Engineering Experience is normally undertaken in the summer vacation between the penultimate and final year of study, but can be earlier or later. This course is flexi term and elective or final year option so you can enrol at multiple times during the year, to match your placement period.   Acceptable behaviour When students undertake WIL activities with industry/community partners, they need to be aware of workplace behaviours and expectations. RMIT rejects all forms of unacceptable behaviour. This applies at all times, including while students undertake WIL placement or project. See the WIL Ready Cred for more.   Schedule: For Students enrolled in OENG1203 To be eligible to enrol in the Hong Kong offering of this course, OENG1203:

  • you must be enrolled in Professional Engineering Experience before starting, and during your placement
  • your placement must be for at least 50 days and not required more than 60 days, undertaken full-time or part-time
  • your placement must be engineering work, typical of the type of work undertaken by a qualified engineer.
  • you must be supervised by a qualified practising engineer while on placement
  • you must not be assessed for this placement in any other RMIT course

Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development
