UNSW Engineering at UNSW empowers students to find exciting work learning experience opportunities in the Engineering industry during their degree. Engineering WIL opportunities are a chance for students to explore different careers, apply classroom theory to real-life work situations, and ensure they are work-ready before they graduate.
UNSW Engineering students who have Industrial Training as a program requirement, must complete 60 days of approved Industrial Training (IT) to graduate and qualify for accreditation by Engineers Australia (EA). All undergraduate students undertaking a Bachelor of Engineering (Hons), including dual programs, and postgraduate students studying the Master of Engineering (8621) program must complete 60 days of ‘Industrial Training’ (Engineering related WIL). Students can take up to three placements, with at least 30 days of Traditional Industrial Training work experience.
Traditional Industrial Training Work experience in a conventional professional engineering workplace where significant technical engineering tasks related to the Engineers Australia (EA) Stage 1 Competencies are undertaken.
Non-Traditional Industrial Training where students have the opportunity to undertake opportunities such as:-
- The Challenge Program offers multidisciplinary projects that offer the opportunity to work on an exciting, real-world project. There are opportunities to connect with academics and companies working on real-world project based learning activities.
