This unit is designed to consolidate students' knowledge and skills in science while conducting an industry placement. During the placement, students may be involved in and work on a variety of different industry and client-based projects, which will afford the opportunity to apply science skills and theories from prior learning. This will provide firsthand experience of how these skills and theories can support the solving of scientific problems in a practical and commercial context, identifying opportunities, developing strategies and designing processes, procedures and management practices in order to enable an organisation to fully realise its competitive potential. The unit is structured around four assessed tasks, which allow students to demonstrate their ability to apply and synthesise concepts in a professional setting.
attendance of the industry placement is mandatory; in addition, students are required to complete a reflective journal (100%)
Credit average across a minimum of 96 credit points of undergraduate study.
