Students spend 6 months at an industrial placement working on a major engineering project relevant to their engineering stream. This is a 24 credit point unit, which may be undertaken as an alternative to BMET4111/4112 Thesis A and B, and two recommended electives. This unit of study gives students experience in carrying out a major project within an industrial environment, and in preparing and presenting detailed technical reports (both oral and written) on their work. The project is carried out under joint University/industry supervision, with the student essentially being engaged fulltime on the project at the industrial site.
Refer to the assessment table in the unit outline.
For students whose degree includes ENGG4000, BMET4010 counts in place of this unit. Students whose degree includes the Professional Engagement Program must enrol in all PEP units. BMET4010 will count toward the Engineering Work requirement of ENGP3000.
