Our industrial training program provides a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) experience. It enables you to engage in authentic, purposeful, partnered, supervised and assessed work learning experiences. This integrates academic learning with its application in the workplace by connecting you directly with industry and community partners.
To graduate from an accredited engineering program at UNSW, you must complete 60 days (not including rest days or public holidays) approved industrial training (WIL as a program requirement). It allows you to graduate with some real on-the-job experience and qualify for accreditation by Engineers Australia.
Industrial training must be approved prior to starting the placement and occur during enrolment of your program of study. This is to ensure that the work undertaken is supervised, relevant to your program of study and approved for credit towards industrial training requirements.
