INDUSTRY PLACEMENT

SCI2INP

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

The industry placement provides students opportunities to consolidate knowledge and enhance skills developed throughout the course in addition to gaining perspectives and skills essential for employment in the industry. Practical experiences and application of scientific and business theory in a commercial agricultural environment will assist students to critically evaluate technical and generic aspects of the agricultural sector as required by employers and the broader industry. These include not only an understanding of seasonal and other agricultural processes necessary for human food production but also management, operational and administrative requirements of an enterprise. Students will be required to understand and demonstrate safe work practices, initiative and the capacity to work independently in a team environment. The placement will provide opportunities for students to create a portfolio that is relevant to a career in a rapidly changing industry.
