Work Experience for Agricultural Engineers


This module allows the learner to put the engineering knowledge, skills, tools and techniques that they have acquired over the first three stages of the programme into practice within a professional working environment. It is a valuable opportunity for the learner to gain an awareness of the world of work and of how to be an effective contributor and problem solver in a team-based environment. Additionally, it may make the learner more employable upon completion of their programme.
