Industrial placements for engineering students: a guide for academics
bookposted on 24.04.2012 by Richard Newman, Debra Lilley, Adam Crawford, Carol J. Arlett
Books are generally long-form documents, a specialist work of writing that contains multiple chapters or a detailed written study.
This guide is aimed at academics and other staff involved with the provision of placements for engineering students. It provides practical advice about developing links with industry and setting up appropriate placement opportunities for students. Students will gain more from their placement if properly prepared and advice is given about how they can be supported both before and during the placement. Health and safety issues are addressed briefly, with links to further information and checklists. The guide discusses issues relating to the assessment of placements and provides some examples of approaches taken by universities.
