The AST program has been implemented for only one year. No similar program has previously existed; consequently, we wanted to understand if the program was on the right track. The objective of the research was to evaluate the performance of this AST programs based on the responses from students, advisors, and an internship employer.
A number of regional HE and VET providers have partnered to develop a flexibly delivered Learning Platform model for engineering, which aims to provide access to engineering pathways and expand curriculum choice and coverage. It reduces individual campus delivery costs and cross-institutional barriers, and improves the availability of engineers and associated para-professionals in regional economies.
The purpose of this study is to develop teaching materials for industry-oriented safety management. Specifically, we investigated the chapters and contents of various industrial safety management teaching materials based on industrial perspectives.
Employability upon graduation is a major priority for most engineering students. New engineering graduates these days are confronted with more challenges and competition in getting employed when compared to graduates of the past. Therefore, the excellent academic degrees alone are inadequate as employers require potential engineers to possess “competencies and capabilities” in generic skill. The objectives of this paper are: firstly, to examine the various engineering employability skills that have been identified after several interviews. Secondly, to collect feedback on whether graduates were employed in their career of choice or in relatively unskilled positions.
To see how much emphasis universities place on water engineering education, an examination was performed on the weighting of courses offered in the area of water engineering within bachelor of civil engineering programs currently offered at tertiary institutions across Australia.
