The BE degree at the ANU is accredited by the Engineers Australia. A requirement of Engineers Australia, as part of the degree accreditation, is that ALL students MUST complete the equivalent of 12 weeks of full-time work experience outside the University during their studies. This is implemented in the BE degree at the ANU as the ENGN3100 course. Besides accreditation, the work experience has the following two purposes:

  1. to expose the student to the workplace and workplace issues (such as human and industrial relations, job organisation, maintenance, safety and environmental issues).
  2. to provide direct insight into professional engineering practice.


It is the student's responsibility to obtain the employment. The School of Engineering provides several resources to help students find work experience, including an annual seminar held in second semester, an ENGN 3100 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document and a list of past employers (updated at the end of each semester).

As a general rule, the ideal would be 12 weeks (420 hours) in an engineering environment where the student is working with or supervised by engineers. Also acceptable is 8 weeks in an engineering environment and remaining 4 weeks in any sort of employment. A variation of this scheme that may be acceptable in a handful of special cases is 4 weeks in any sort of employment, 4 weeks in employment in a technical industry of some kind and 4 weeks of work with engineers in an engineering environment. All work experience claimed must have been completed since the commencement of the degree.

Students are required to submit a 10-15 page report upon completion of their work experience. For details of report requirements, report assessment and submission procedure, please see  http://eng.anu.edu.au/courses/ENGN3100/

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
