UEEA/UEET/UEEL 3934 Industrial Training 2009 Coordinators: Francis Ng Choon Website: (go to Industrial Training, and then Industrial Training for the depart. Of Electrical & Electronic Engineering)
Outcome-Based Education (OBE) A set of Programme Outcomes are specified It defines the attributes that the industry expect the graduates to have attained upon graduation. OBE requires that the students demonstrate that they have learnt the required skills and content
Industrial Training Part of EAC requirements for accreditation of engineering programmes. Employers will expect you to demonstrate a range of practical skills and soft skills. Therefore, students must know the required PO and improve themselves accordingly. ITP is one of the means for the University and the Industry to measure the students’ achievement of the POs.
Objective and learning outcomes To expose the student to the industry and to receive practical training under the supervision of qualified staff acquire and apply knowledge of engineering fundamentals acquire in-depth technical competence in the specific engineering discipline during the industrial training demonstrate problem identification and solving skill apply the relevant references, guidelines and code of ethics related to engineering practices apply systems approach to design and evaluate operational performance apply interpersonal communication skill with technical or/and non-technical staff in the work place work effectively as an individual or team player recognize the need to undertake life-long learning
Sustainable Development Be aware of the current good practices of electrical & electronic engineering for sustainable development Minimum impact to the environment Minimize energy consumption Minimize use of material and waste
Programme Objectives Programme Outcomes describe the attributes that the students are expected to attain at the point of graduation. Programme Objectives describe the career and professional accomplishments that the programme would prepares the graduates to achieve in a few years after their graduation.
Programme Objectives Programme Objectives of 3EProgramme Objectives of EC The graduates of Electrical and Electronic Engineering Programme will use the latest knowledge and techniques in developing, maintaining, servicing, sales and marketing, and research of electrical and electronics technologies The graduates of Electronic and Communication Engineering Programme will use the latest knowledge and techniques in design, developing, maintaining, servicing, sales and marketing, and research of electronic telecommunication and technologies The graduates will assume technical, managerial and ethical roles effectively in the organizations they work in. The graduates will be involved in the affairs of professional institutions and keep abreast of the nation’s needs and developments, and provide services to the engineering communities and the nation
Report & evaluation The industrial training assessment consists of: Report with description of working experience, skills, and knowledge Daily logbook Student’s appraisal form Report format must follow Report Guidelines Pass/fail evaluation (passing mark is 50) Submission deadline: 11 Jan % 30%
Evaluation of ITP Report A. Organization-related Learning Outcome (15%) B. Application of Theory and Soft Skills (15%) C. Presentation Quality of Report (20%) D. Periodic Reports / Logbook (20%) E. Report from Industrial Supervisor (30%) The content of the ITP report shall demonstrate achievement of the 10 Programme Outcomes.
Procedure What you need to do: 1. Prepare & submit a resume to course rep (softcopy). 2. Course reps submit all resumes to coordinators 3. Choose your preferred companies for practical attachment 4. Send applications to the companies (with supporting documents from the Faculty) 5. Accept/reject within 1 week upon receiving offer from company (check ITP website regularly) 6. Undergo industrial training for 12 weeks minimum 7. During training, keep a daily logbook (see the guideline) 8. At the end of ITP, submit the student’s appraisal form to the industrial supervisor for evaluation and put inside a sealed envelop. 9. Write up & submit a report to your academic supervisor at UTAR, together with the student’s appraisal form in sealed envelop.
Company’s field of industry Companies which offer training relevant to your studies should be an engineering or scientific environment (e.g. electrical systems, electronics, communications, computer technology) System design, development, presentation and documentation Project planning, organization, execution and management Machine operation, troubleshooting, verification, service and repair learning of technical skills and knowledge
How to find a company? Find and obtain the following Address, Contact No., Contact person Refer to the company list Search Internet Search newspaper job ads Tel. no. search in Walking around office blocks Ask family members, relatives and friends for recommendations
Submitting the application Download, fill in, print (use good-quality laser/inkjet printer), and send them in one envelop to your target company: Application letter Resume Support & reply letter ( needs to be certified by the coordinator ) FAQ Number of applications limited to 5, for the first month (will be increased in the next month)
Company offer Company shall reply back to UTAR If offered, student have to decide to accept or reject within 1 week (please check the notice board & web site regularly) If student accepts offer, sign Indemnity letter No further change of company allowed UTAR will reply accept/reject to company on student’s behalf You are allowed to reject up to 5 companies only
Summary of the application process Search for companies Call up to ask about internship (optional) Send application – obtain certified support letter from coordinator Offer ? Sign indemnity letter N Y Report for work ! Accept ? N Y
Remarks A lecturer will be assigned as your academic supervisor and he/she may visit you on week 8 – 12 Midway through the ITP, if a student go into ES or ET status, he/she must withdraw from the ITP. The ITP will be invalid and the student must re-register for ITP after he get back to normal status.
Attitude on Industrial Training It is hoped that students will present a good image of UTAR undergraduates Be present and punctual at the company Positive, can-do attitude Put in efforts and interests in your works Try to learn as much as you can Ask lots of questions Request for opportunity to involve in technical work Consult ITP coordinator if any problem
Importance of ITP in OBE To demonstrate achievement of POs Technical skills Ethical and professional skills Teamwork and leadership skills Communication skills Awareness of cultural, global and environmental responsibilities in decision making Life-long learning
Extending the training period With the agreement from the training company, you may extend your training period for another semester submit the form Application for Deferment of Study (obtainable from the 3rd floor form-cabinet) to the administration before 5 Dec 2009 provide a letter from the company requesting for training extension submit industrial training report on the 4 Jan 2010 If approved by the Dean, you may continue your training with the company for another 3.5 months credit hour for extended training period remains as 4 As a regulation, you may be allowed to defer your study only once during your whole period of undergraduate study Please inform the Coordinators if you have successfully obtained the approval for extended training from the Dean
