Hit the ground running
Students start developing workplace skills from the moment they begin their degree making them more industry-ready by the time they graduate. We teach you the professional skills you need when you start work – skills like communication and report writing, to issues such as ethics, sustainability, safety, and interactions with customers and clients.
Real-world problem solving
Our graduates acquire all-roundedness, by combining the applied side of learning of labs and projects, balanced with academic theory, hands-on design, and industry projects. They learn to solve problems in real-world projects and have the opportunity to work for companies while they are still students, gaining a competitive edge.
Practical work placements are an integral part of the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours and Bachelor of Forestry Science degrees. As an Engineering student or Forestry Science student, you will complete 90-100 days of practical work experience for a company or organisation. Work is generally done over the summers and is paid. Students often work for 1–2 companies during their practical work experience, allowing them to gain valuable skills in industry while studying. This often leads to job opportunities upon graduating. Their time in industry helps them to develop skills such as communication, teamwork, and leadership.
