This course will enable computer science students to develop competencies expected of professionals working in business, government or the broader community. A list of available internship opportunities will be maintained for which students can apply. A holistic selection process will be used to select the best applicant for each opportunity. Students can also propose internships, but these will always be established following negotiations between the ANU and the potential host organisations, before being offered to students along with other opportunities.

Learning Outcomes

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

  1. Demonstrate a personal commitment to ethical behaviour, competent practice, meeting legal and regulatory requirements, taking responsibility for their own work and acknowledging the work of others.
  2. Demonstrate autonomy, adaptability, a commitment to safety and sustainability, appropriate engagement with relevant stakeholders, and an ability to identify, assess and manage risk.
  3. Communicate effectively and work productively in a multi-disciplinary team, using initiative and sound judgement, to achieve defined workplace objectives.
  4. Apply their knowledge and skills in computer science to explore and critically analyse a real-world problem; using creativity and innovation, identify and critically evaluate potential solutions to the problem; choose and implement a particular solution; and critically evaluate and analyse the outcomes and impact of this solution.
  5. Demonstrate an understanding of lifelong learning processes, and clarification of their personal and professional goals, through critical reflection on their internship experience.

Indicative Assessment

  1. Three peer reviews of the project(s) undertaken within the internship (75) [LO null]
  2. Poster and showcase (10) [LO null]
  3. Individual reflective report (15) [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

Based on the credit points involved, from 120 to 480 hours of student learning time, consisting of a combination of attendance at the internship placement, attendance at and participation in assessment activities, and writing the reflective report.
