The aim of this course is to use the internship experience to enable students to develop their engineering skills and practice. Invited Students will be placed in industry and assessed for academic credit. The internships will be aligned with the aims of the engineering program and its areas of specialisation. Students will experience a real-life engineering workplace and understand how their engineering and professional skills and knowledge can be utilised in industry. They will also be able to demonstrate functioning engineering knowledge, both new and existing, and identify areas of further development for their future careers.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Experience of applying existing engineering knowledge in similar or new situations
  2. Ability to identify when new engineering knowledge is required, and apply it
  3. Ability to integrate existing and new technical knowledge for industrial application
  4. Ability to demonstrate the impact of the internship on their learning and professional development through mapping to relevant Stage 2 Engineers Australia technical competencies
  5. Understanding of lifelong learning processes through critical reflection of internship experiences.

Other Information

International students undertaking an internship during Semester 1 or 2 that is weighted at less than 24 units will need to ensure that they are enrolled in a full-time study load to remain compliant with their Student Visa requirements. Domestic students should note that enrolling in a part-time load may impact their eligibility for government support payments (e.g. Youth Allowance, Austudy).


If a student is unsure if they can fit an internship in their program they should seek advice from CECS Student Services (studentexp.cecs@anu.edu.au).

Please note that all internships must be approved by the internship convenor, and students need to obtain this approval well ahead of commencing the internship.

 

Academic Requirements:

 Internships are highly competitive. As intern positions become available they will be advertised via the CECS website. Unless stated otherwise, students will need to demonstrate that they have completed a minimum of 96 Engineering program courses and have a minimum GPA of 5.0 in their studies. Other specific requirements may also apply, at the discretion of the Internship Host Organisation.


Where a student organises the industry placement themselves, it is the responsibility of the student to contact CECS Student Services (studentexp.cecs@anu.edu.au) well in advance of commencement of the placement.

An agreement between ANU and the Host Organisation is required, setting out obligations of both parties, including confirmation that student will be a paid employee during the internship (e.g. in a casual/fixed term position) and that the intern will be supervised by a degree-qualified engineer with at least 5 years’ experience in their discipline.

Indicative Assessment

  1. Internship Journal (e-Portfolio) and Reflection Items (20) [LO null]
  2. Internship Report (60) [LO null]
  3. Industry Supervisor Report (20) [LO null]

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.

Workload

The preferred duration of an Engineering internship is a 12 week, full-time placement with an industry partner (12 x 40 hour work week). This is equal to 24 units of academic credit; however, students have the option to have a placement count as either 6, 12 or 18 units of credit (based on the available elective space within their program). It is noted that the unit value cannot be varied after the internship has concluded.


Subject to approval from the Internship Host Organisation, students may complete an internship at any intensity (full-time or part-time hours) but the placement must be completed (and all assessment items submitted) within the study period they are enrolled.
