Work Integrated Learning Part 1 (7820ICT_P1)

This course is conducted with students participating in one of three, main "strands": - Project-based placement in industry: in an individual student placement within a commercial, industrial or research environment, a student undertakes a project in a professional workplace (which may include a University laboratory) whilst simultaneously managing their learning and course assessment. The project provides students with the opportunity to undertake a substantial project that usually has an industry application. Students work in close liaison with their industry supervisor and academic supervisor throughout the project and are expected to demonstrate a good understanding of their project. - Role-based placement in industry: in an individual student placement within a commercial or industrial environment, a student undertakes a professional role in the workplace. Students work in close liaison with their industry supervisor and academic supervisor throughout the placement and are expected to demonstrate a good understanding of their role and required contribution. - Project-based engagement with industry: projects are sought from a range of industry and university partners (project sponsors) that require significant development, communication and documentation effort. The problem is addressed by a number of students working in a group to form a student project team. Significant importance is placed on effective project management and excellent communication strategies between team members, the project manager, and with the industry client. Within this strand, students may undertake different "tracks" depending on the development lifecycle model appropriate to the project. Students work in close liaison with their external client and academic supervisor throughout the project and are expected to demonstrate a good understanding of their project.
