Engineering students Industrial Training

Industrial Training is important for making an engineering student work ready. To graduate from an engineering program at UNSW all students must complete a minimum of 60 days of approved Industrial Training. It means, not only do you graduate with some real on-the-job experience, you also qualify for accreditation by Engineers Australia.    

An engineering student’s Industrial Training must happen at the same time they are enrolled in the program. Ideally you will start your placement from the end of Year 2 onwards. With UNSW 3+ from 2019 UNSW Engineering Students now have the option to undertake Industrial during a full term of study, part time during studies, or full time in the term break.  All Industrial Training must be approved prior to starting to ensure that the work undertaken is relevant to your degree of study.
