Exposure to Professional Practice
The HEIP Program is specifically developed to provide real lasting value to the humanitarian engineers of the future. We have aligned the outcomes of this program to support participant development towards achieving the Stage 1 Competencies outlined by Engineers Australia. A copy of these competencies can be found here. Upon completion of this Program, participants will have the skills and experience necessary to use engineering for the benefit of humanity and progress their own engineering careers.
Many of our participants use the HEIP program to meet part of the requirements for graduation of their engineering degree. This page is intended to provide a breakdown of the ways in which our program may meet those requirements.
A common requirement for engineering degrees is exposure to professional practice or work experience hours. Our programs include up to 240 hours of exposure to professional engineering practice supervised and signed off by professional engineers. The breakdown of these hours is given below:
