Frequently Asked Questions about Final Industrial Training (IT) Report
Please also refer to the webpage What is the Assessment for Industrial Training? and Opportunities, Support and FAQ’s

When to submit your Final IT Report
As soon as you can after you finished 60 days of Industrial Training and after your Employer Evaluation form has been approved.

It can take 2-3 months for ENGG 4999 to be added to your transcript therefore your Industrial Training can delay your graduation or receiving your completion letter.

We advise you to request a progression check to ensure you are on the right track for your degree.

Our advice is to write your Final IT Report while you are on your placement.

What does it mean that I have to comply with the EA Stage 1 competency and reflect it in my Final IT Report?
You must illustrate how you demonstrated the EA Stage 1 competencies during your work experience in your report.

Your placement should expose you to engineering tasks, skills and activities that demonstrate the EA Stage 1 competencies. 

For example, you secure a placement at a car company. If your work is related to sales and customer service, it’s most likely not acceptable. If your work is involved with sustainable, engineering car design, it’s most likely satisfying specific conditions in the EA Stage 1 Competencies.

Please refer to the UNSW Reflective Writing webpage for guidance on reflective writing.
