SDCM71-327: Professional Practice

Description

Professional Practice provides students the opportunity in an authentic learning environment to develop both their skills for the real world of the construction industry.

The subject encourages students to combine self-analysis and reflective learning skills with professional methodologies to expand their analytic and strategic thinking capabilities. It also provides practical experience for students to appreciate the requirements of industrial practice and develop their communication skills to improve their ‘work readiness’.

Students will complete a 12-week Workshop Program on campus that offers students a mix of classroom learning and practical experiences incorporating skills sessions, industry guest involvement and site inspections.
