Hi people, my name is Alan and I am currently completing my Bachelor of Engineering/Diploma of Professional Practice (Co-op). What follows is a bit of a spiel about my personal experience of the program and why it was so good.
Hi! I am a final year electrical engineering student in the Bachelor of Engineering/Diploma of Professional Practice (Co-Op) program. I enrolled in this course straight out of high school and was enticed by the challenges and career opportunities that the engineering field has to offer. I chose CQUniversity due to the practical components of the program; the idea of graduating with at least a year’s worth of experience was intriguing.
My name is Matthew White and I’m a CQUni third year engineering student studying the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and Diploma of Professional Practice (Co-op Engineering) majoring in electrical engineering.
The program provides access to 48 weeks of paid work and this year I went out into the workforce for my first official 24 week Co-op placement at Ergon Energy as a Reporting Analyst in Asset Governance Reporting. I have also been privileged to work previously with Energex in Demand Management and have just returned to Ergon on an extended contract to continue my work for a few months over Christmas.
