Restrictions In order for the industrial placement to proceed, students must not have any supplementary exams to take in September. This module cannot be taken in combination with the Industrial Year Placement (04 27413) module.
Description The student will undertake a placement with a host company or organisation to apply, as appropriate, the knowledge, theory and skills developed on the degree programme in a practical `real world' setting. It is expected that each student understand the context in which the work is being executed. This will include the business need to be successful and generate income; and the operational business processes and procedures in a national and international framework. In the execution of their work each student will experience complex external inputs from co-workers, suppliers, consultants and the constraints imposed by General Legislation, Health & Safety, Risk Management, Process controls, Sustainability and Environmental issues.

Students will complete an inception report within the first two weeks of the placement, in which they identify the work to be carried out and initial expectations of objectives and learning which will be achieved. Ideally this will be completed in consultation with the placement supervisor.

Throughout the placement the student will maintain a personal diary and log of the experience gained, using a pro-forma provided and which is based on professional institutional development objectives.

Assessment is based on information to be provided by the placement host on the student’s performance and professionalism (10%), final report (50%), the personal log (20%) and a presentation (20%), in which the student report and reflects on the academic aspects the work carried out and the experience gained.

Key elements of the Final Report will be demonstration of how the expected learning outcomes were achieved and a literature review related to an element of depth within the project.
Learning Outcomes By the end of the module the student should be able to:
  • Demonstrate that they have utilised and further enhanced their technical skills within a working environment, complying fully with Health and Safety regulations and showing an understanding of the sustainability issues relevant to the placement;
  • Demonstrate transferable skills appropriate to the workplace, such as teamwork, communication, commercial awareness and project planning and implementation;
  • Maintain a personal record of training received and reflect on what has been learnt;
  • Present a well-structured report on placement activities, taking personal, technical, commercial, management, sustainability and Health & Safety issues into consideration.
  • Prepare a short literature review of relevance to the placement work carried out.
