ENS4111 Engineering Practicum
Credit Points: 0

Each student enrolled in any of the Professional Engineering degree programs at Edith Cowan University is required to gain at least 12 weeks full-time equivalent practical work experience before they can graduate from their degree.  It is expected that this practical experience will enable the student to work with professional engineers in office, laboratory or site-based environments, where the student can appreciate a range of industry issues that relate to engineers and engineering practice.  This work experience is most likely to be undertaken during the summer or mid-semester breaks where periods of several weeks are available, but it is also acceptable for students to accrue the equivalent of the 12 weeks in non-contiguous blocks, or part-time over longer periods.
