Course description

This course offers students the opportunity to interact with relevant professionals in the field of biotechnology and biosciences during an industry placement either in Australia or overseas. The course consists of 8 weeks of equivalent flexible, structured, technical experience in an organisation or institute ( private, public and not for profit organizations and research centres). The placement must be approved by the Course Coordinator. The Course Coordinator may also assist the students in finding appropriate placements. The students will remain under the guidance of an identified Industry-Based Supervisor for the duration of the placement. A UQ based supervisor will also be identified who will be in touch with the industry supervisor and the student on a regular basis. The UQ and Industry supervisors will define the management and implementation of the educational content and objectives of the placement, the standard of learning and performance to be achieved and the management of the assessment of student learning and performance. The Industry supervisor, will provide the oversight and direction of work during the placement. The industry supervisor will also have ongoing and regular input and contact with the student(s). The course will be conducted during the summer semester immediately after the second semester examinations.
