OVERVIEW OF INDUSTRIAL TRAINING General
Industrial Training refers to work experience that is relevant to professional development prior to graduation. One of the requirements for the award of Bachelor of Engineering is that students must complete at least 12 weeks of Industrial Training. Industrial Training is normally accumulated during the semester breaks at the end of the third or fourth year. The Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) and Engineers Australia, which are the organisations that accredits all engineering programs in Malaysia and Australia, strongly advocates that an industrial training experience component of at least 12 weeks duration is included in all engineering undergraduate courses. Students should note that Industrial Training is an essential component in the development of the practical and professional skills required of an Engineer and an aid to prospective employment. Many employers regard this period as a chance to vet new employees for future employment. All students should make considerable effort and give sufficient thought into obtaining the most relevant and effective Industrial Training. Whilst difficult, it is desirable to obtain experience in a range of activities, such as e.g. design office, laboratory and on-site situations. It should also be noted that developing an awareness of general workplace behaviour and interpersonal skills are important objectives of the Industrial Training experience.
All students who are registered for a Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) and Bachelor of Technology are required to undergo ‘Industrial Training’ for a period of 12 weeks after Year 3. Industrial Training Objectives a) To expose students to engineering experience and knowledge. Which is required in industry, where these are not taught in the lecture rooms. To apply the engineering knowledge taught in the lecture rooms in real industrial situations. To use the experience gained from the ‘Industrial Training’ in discussions held in the lecture rooms. To get a feel of the work environment. To gain experience in writing reports in engineering works/projects. Version 1.0
