Course Description The purpose of the Industry Project is to give students the opportunity to gain an insight into the operation of their field of study and develop an understanding of their profession in a professional context. By enabling students to observe the day-to-day operations of an organisation and to prepare a research project based on these observations, with the guidance of a work place and academic supervisor, students will develop a critical perspective of their profession. Students will attend pre and post placement classes to guide the development of their research project, the sourcing of their host organisation and the protocols associated with the placement.
