The Engineering accrediting body Engineers Australia, states that 'exposure to professional engineering practice is a key element in differentiating a professional engineering degree from an applied science degree' and requires engineering graduates to have exposure to professional practice.

Meaning all UQ Bachelor of Engineering, Bachelor of Engineering (Honours), Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Master of Engineering, and Master of Engineering students must complete the below requirements in order to graduate.

  1. Complete 450 hours of professional practice approved by the Faculty, and;
  2. Satisfactorily complete five (5) reflections from your Engineering Professional Practice experiences, referring to the Engineers Australia competencies. See more information here: Reflection Assessment Writing guidelines;

A minimum of 225 hours in an engineering environment under a degree qualified engineer to be claimed for Type A hours. The remaining hours can be made up of a range of allowable professional practice activities.

This webinar will break down the requirements, and go through the activity table in detail, and reflections but mainly a chance to ask any questions you might be unsure about. Sometimes it might be tricky to know how to start.

Come with your questions!
