Work Integrated Learning

The College of Science and Engineering at James Cook University is committed to training and preparing students to be productive and valued members of the workforce. To achieve this aim, our undergraduate and Masters level qualifications have a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) approach designed to develop employability skills throughout the degree by providing practical learning experiences and increasing the interaction of future employers and students through learning activities and assessments within subjects as well as placement experiences.

Student Placement is a formal component of JCU degree programs that integrates theoretical and academic learning with application in a workplace. It aims to enrich the university experience and increase student employability with hands-on experience in a workplace relevant to the student’s field of study.

The College of Science and Engineering (CSE) promotes, supports, and administers quality teaching, hands-on experiences, industry placements, and research in the areas of:

AnthropologyEnvironmental and Marine Geosciences
