Mode of Delivery
Subject to demand, the (BXX001-004C; Bachelor’s and Master’s) hands-on workshops are run over four weeks in Perth and Johannesburg, commencing in January and November each year, with the Professional Practice Workshop (MXX001; Master’s only) being run in the fifth week.
Unit Workload (30-40 hours total under professional supervision)

Unit Description and General Aims

Demonstrable practical hands-on work is a requirement of many professional engineering societies and accreditation agencies around the work and is an essential component of the EIT Master of Engineering program.

EIT Master of Engineering students are required to complete or obtain, either; recognition of prior learning or exemption for, each of the four specialised Bachelor of Science Hands-on Workshops (BXX001-004C) and the specialised Master of Engineering Professional Practice Workshop (MXX001); which has engineering student project teams working on a discipline-related comprehensive industrial case study.

On-campus and online students will elect to attend one of the annual workshop deliveries, at an EIT campus, but no sooner than having completed three semesters of full-time equivalent study to ensure sufficient prerequisite knowledge and skill. Subject to demand, workshops are run over four weeks in Perth and Johannesburg, commencing in January and November each year, with a fifth week for Master’s students. On-campus students may also choose to complete the initial workshops over the course of a semester.

Students who already possess significant industrial experience in their engineering discipline of study may apply for recognition of prior learning to meet this requirement. Master’s students who possess an accord-recognised undergraduate qualification are exempt from the first four workshops.

Assessment  

Type: Hands-on practical activities.

Each engineering specialization (i.e. CS, EE, IA, ME) requires the completion of a specific workshop.

All tasks, activities, instructions, and answer sheets are provided in associated student workbooks and are to be conducted under professional supervision during designated annual periods. All tasks and activities for a given workshop must be completed to a sufficient standard and verified by the supervisor.
