Professional Experience Program

Our professional experience provides students with authentic, practical and experiential learning in a professional environment. Students gain insight into what it’s like working in industry, exposing them to industry challenges and giving them some perspective on career expectations.

Our engineering students are required to complete the equivalent of at least 12 weeks of full-time professional experience for accreditation in areas such as design, analysis or testing, project management, investigatory assignments and onsite inspections, technical writing projects and more.

By partnering with us, your organisation will gain:

  • access to talented students who can bring new perspectives to your organisation
  • an additional resource for key projects
  • a potential recruitment channel
  • the opportunity to influence the quality of the future workforce by cultivating work ready graduates
  • a tool for staff engagement and development by providing mentoring opportunities for staff
  • the ability to engage and strengthen your relationship with the University
  • opportunity to enhance your company profile through brand awareness and contribute to your organisation’s corporate social responsibility.
