Circuitwise today hosted a visit by engineering students from the University of Sydney, as part of their professional engagement program.
The program consists of site visits and participation in educational events, in addition to the more traditional work experience and internship components. Completion of the program qualifies student to become members of Engineers Australia and helps form a habit of continuing professional education, required of professional engineers.
The purpose of site visits is to give students a better insight into real world engineering practice and put their theoretical learning into context. Students are required to reflect on their experience and share them in workshops each semester, developing their interpersonal and professional skills.
The Manager of Education Engagement and Partner Relationships at the university's engineering faculty, Keiran Passmore, said the overall aim of the program is develop well rounded engineers. Circuitwise is pleased to be able to contribute to this process.
