Students as Partners - Walk beside me and be my student partner
Students as Partners at UNSW April Network Meeting
These regular meetings are for UNSW staff and students interested in Students as Partners at UNSW.
Dr May Lim, Senior Lecturer, Industrial Training and Taste of Research Coordinator, UNSW Chemical Engineering
Emma Daniels and Buddhi Ranasinghe, students of Dr. Lim
All UNSW engineering students must complete a minimum of 60 days of Industrial Training (IT) before they can graduate from their degree program. IT is a valuable experience for the student as it provides them with first-hand experience working as an engineering professional, and employer often assess students for future employment during their IT placement. Nonetheless, IT is also a daunting experience for many students due to their own inexperience and current state of the job market. We also have issues on the institution side re compliancy with the Engineers Australia accreditation requirements, workplace regulation, UNSW insurance policy, and engagement with industry. In this talk, May will explain what drove her to partner with student societies to improve the IT experience and career opportunities of Chemical Engineering students, and share some tools and tips on working closely with student, e.g. Why engage with student via Facebook Messenger?
