Industry Affiliates Program (3001ENV)

This course is conducted primarily as individual student placements, or small teams of students within an industrial or research environment and emphasises academic and vocational aspects of modern industry practice. Students consolidate their technical knowledge by undertaking a project in a professional workplace (which may include a University laboratory) whilst simultaneously managing their learning and course assessment. The project provides students with the opportunity to undertake a substantial project that usually has an industry application. Students work in close liaison with their industry supervisor and university supervisor throughout the project and are expected to demonstrate a good understanding of their project. The course also emphasises that competence in management, business and social responsibilities are essential components in all fields within the environmental science professions and the key attributes of a contemporary industry or research environment.
