Students spend 6 months at an industrial placement working on a major engineering project relevant to Civil Engineering. This is a 24 credit point unit, which may be undertaken as an alternative to CIVL4022/4023 Thesis and two other subjects as approved by the Civil Director of Undergraduate studies. The two other subjects will most commonly be Civil electives, and students will normally need to have 12cp of Civil electives available in their degree at the time of enrolment in CIVL4203. Places in this unit are limited and dependent on the availability of suitable industry partners. Students will be required to have consistently high academic results in their previous years. If there are more applicants than there are available positions an applicant will be chosen based on the highest WAM and and other suitability factors relating to the project and the company. 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 full-time on the project at the industrial site. The placement is usually a full-time on-site placement for one semester in the student's final year.
