Summary
Student exposure to engineering practice is an essential component of formative engineering degrees. Good quality exposure to practice should increase the numbers of engineering graduate numbers and improve their readiness for employment. The “Enhancing Industry Exposure in Engineering Degrees” is led by the Australian Council of Engineering Deans and funded by the Australian Government Department of Industry, Innovation, Climate Change, Science, Research and Tertiary Education as a project of the National Resources Sector Workforce Strategy. The project has 12 partner universities and also industry partners: Engineers Australia; Minerals Council of Australia; Australian Mines and Metals Association; Consult Australia; and the Australian Petroleum, Production and Exploration Association.
