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. It doesn’t all have to happen in one stretch, ideally your 60 days of engineering industry training could be spread out over a year as an engineering internship or over your summer holidays at the end of the 2nd and 3rd years. Most of you would have done work experience at high school, this is just the next step up.
