Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

Placements are secured with the assistance of Cooperative Education Unit and students are typically paid seasonal rates during the work placement. Assessment is based on several assessment items set during the placement (of which the technical report assignment is compulsory) and employer evaluation of the student work performance. It is expected that student will have successfully completed SCIE279, SCIE371, SCIE379, and SCIE372 before commencing this paper. Often this paper is a continuation of the work placement from SCIE372, often involving the same project, and at the same supporting organisation as that of SCIE372. The work placement is intended to advance the professional skills developed from previous work placement papers through work in relevant professional workplaces. Work placements allow students to observe professional practice, workplace cultures and consider potential career paths. Students will be able to apply knowledge and skills learnt at university, develop technical applied knowledge, interpersonal skills, and a professional work ethic.
