• 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.

            • 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.
