• Industry Experience

    100 days of Industry Work Experience

    If you are a student in the Bachelor of Construction Management and Economics (Honours) IHCN program OR if you are a student in the Bachelor of Built Environments (IBBE) programs who perhaps hopes to one day transfer into the IHCN program, then the information below is relevant to you because the successful completion of Bachelor of Construction Management and Economics (Honours) IHCN program requires 100 days of industry work experience before commencing courses within the fourth year of the program and undertaking the course Integrated Project (BUIL 4027).

     

    Work Health and Safety requirements

    The university has created a work health and safety (WHS) online training module called Undertaking a Safe Student Placement.

    This module has been designed to provide you with key WHS knowledge to enable you to confidently undertake an industry placement or work experience opportunity related to your course of study. The training takes around 20 minutes to complete which includes answering the quiz questions.

    The School of Natural and Built Environments is asking that any student who participates in a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) activity (industry placement, work experience etc.) completes this online training module before they commence.

    You must click 'Yes' to the Declaration in order to be recorded as completing the course and print your certificate and then we ask that you attach this to your FS23 - Student Placement Insurance form, then get the FS23 form singed by your Host Employer and then either your Course Coordinator or Program Director prior to commencing your industry placement or work experience.

          2018 Recruitment drive!

          My name is Jack Tininczky, and I am a committee member of the Builders' Organisation of Staff and Students (BOSS). Some of you may know me from previous years. If you are an incoming first year student, you will have met me at the NBE Orientation Day at City East Campus. 

          BOSS is a student organisation affiliated with the School of Natural and Built Environments (NBE) and its role is to help students by connecting them with industry and providing them with relevant training, and opportunities for socialising and making friends. Some of our events include, but are not limited to, white card training, first aid training, sponsorship fairs, and an annual end of year dinner. 

          (For those who do not know, a white card is a certification that is legally required before you to attend any building site in Australia. In order to get your white card, you must complete a short course typically lasting for about half a day. BOSS is currently working to organise an opportunity for you to complete this course as a group. Please bear with us and we will get into contact with you as soon as possible!)

          Previous BOSS committee members have been highly successful in acquiring jobs and internships and, in my experience, BOSS involvement is very beneficial during and well regarded by employers. 

          We are currently recruiting interested students who are looking to get involved in the organisation. Your level of involvement does not have to be time consuming and can be tailored to your individual preferences and availability.

          BOSS will host our annual AGM in the upcoming weeks (please kindly bear with us for an email containing all details), where we will vote on our 2018 committee. All interested students are strongly encouraged to attend, however, please note that students are more than welcome to become involved with BOSS any time throughout the year. 

          We are currently working on streamlining the process by which students become involved with our organisation, so that BOSS can become more accessible and dynamic.

          If you are interested in getting involved with the exciting 2018 BOSS Committee, please consider completing this quick and simple online form! This will greatly assist us to get in contact with you, and will help us better engage with the student body.

            • Internal Transfers

              Transferring between Programs

              In order to transfer into a different Program to what you are current studying you will need to submit an 'Application to Change Program' online form, which can be found here under Enrolments. We recommend you organise a time to meet with your Program Director to discuss your program change prior to submitting your form.

              Please note - the Associate Degree in Built Environments, Bachelor of Built Environments and Bachelor of Construction Management and Economics (Honours) programs are all classified at 'Nested Programs'. Therefore if you are submitting a form to transfer into one of these programs when it asks you 'What change would you like to make?' you must select the '' option.
