All engineering students are required to complete 60 days of industrial training to be eligible to graduate. Most of your questions about industrial training can be answered by looking at the Faculty of Engineering Industrial Training website.
The School's Industrial Training Coordinator is
A/Prof. Ashraf Uddin
Room 214, Building H6,
Tyree Energy Technologies Building,

In addition to the Industrial Training Certification Form available on the Faculty website, you are required to submit a 3,000 word engineering report regarding your industrial training experience (10 - 12 pages, 1.5 line spacing, 12 size font). This report is not a descriptive account of your experience, but rather a critical and analytical discussion of your IT experience. Examples of things to include are: an overview of the organisation with which you did your IT and your role and responsibilities within the organisation; what you learnt from your IT experience and what skills you developed; how your IT training met the objectives of the IT program; how your IT experience relates to your university studies, and future career direction....... These are just a few ideas to get you thinking a little more critically and analytically about your IT. The employer must approve the report prior to submission and formally endorse the report as an accurate record of your employment on the title page. If more than one company is involved the report may be divided into sections representing each company and endorsed accordingly.
In general, students are paid by an organisation as an employee for their industrial training, and therefore are covered by that company's insurance policy. Where a student is not paid, they should obtain a Letter of Indemnity from the School and give this to the organisation where they are doing their industrial training. To receive this Letter of Indemnity, the company and student are required to complete a Risk Assessment and submit this to the Industrial Training Coordinator. Regarding the insurance policy, please find more details at faculty website: http://www.eng.unsw.edu.au/information-for/current-students/undergraduates/industrial-training-it/industrial-training-policies- . You may get Ashraf to sign a Letter of Indemnity for you.
If you are expecting to complete the requirements for your degree at the end of Semester 1, you will need to submit your IT report by Week 2 of Semester 1 or Week 2 of Semester 2 if you complete your degree at the end of semester 2. Please submit your report in IT-report box, next to level – 1 receptionist of Tyree Energy and Technology Building (TETB) (H6), School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering. Late submission may delay your graduation. Please attach the Industrial Training Certification form as well. It can also be downloaded from:
