On Offer: Yes
Level: Senior Advanced
Faculty/School: School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
Unit Coordinator/s: A/Prof White, Don
Hind, David
Session options: Semester 1, Semester 2
Versions for this Unit:
Campus: Camperdown/Darlington
Pre-Requisites: [144 CP prior study with >65% WAM]. Prerequisites: Passed at least 144 credit points. Students wishing to do this unit of study are required to discuss the matter with the Head of School prior to enrolment.
Brief Handbook Description: This unit of study will give students a rich 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 and extends over several months, with the student essentially being engaged fulltime on the project at the industrial site. Previous students have been placed with industries in areas including the mining industry, oil and gas processing, plastic and paint manufacture, food production, manufacturing and so on. Students will learn from this experience the following essential engineering skills : how to examine published and experimental data, set objectives, organise a program of work, and analyse results and evaluate these in relation to existing knowledge. Presentation skills will also be developed, which are highly relevant to many branches of engineering activity.WAM greater than credit average.
Assumed Knowledge: None.
Additional Notes: Enrollment by permission only. The candidate will be selected by interview and at the discretion of the Head of School.
Department Permission Department permission is required for enrollment in this session.

Attributes listed here represent the key course goals (see Course Map tab) designated for this unit. The list below describes how these attributes are developed through practice in the unit. See Learning Outcomes and Assessment tabs for details of how these attributes are assessed.
