Industry placements and work-based training
Across all four disciplines, our industry placements immerse students in professional practice. Students undertake work-based training.
We champion creative industry partnerships and community engagement to expose students to live architecture and engineering projects – ranging from humanitarian concerns, local NGO initiatives, and work with local primary schools through to fabricating experimental prototypes.
Travel both overseas and interstate as part of your studies. Study tours have taken us to Oman, New Caledonia, South Korea, Italy, Indonesia, Malaysia and India.
We are very proud of our 6-year tripartite Design Studio between our University, Tonji University (China), University of Adelaide and the Politecnico di Milano (Italy) as well as our 7-year joint education program with Nantong University (China).
We encourage networking and ideas sharing amongst university peers.
The University of Adelaide’s Civil Engineering Society, Engineering Society and AUSABE (Architecture) are student-run organisations that provide enriching social experiences and career-building opportunities.
