In order to provide students with the necessary professional skills, the BUE has identified the need for industrial interaction for the students of today who would graduate to be the workforce of tomorrow.
The Faculty of Engineering requires its students to attend a compulsory training program twice along their five years of study. Achieving that objective requires the organization and coordination with a wide range of industrial contacts that are willing to provide that opportunity for the students.
Engineering students are required to spend an average of 300 training hours/year. Industrial Internships are required in the summer of year 2 and year 3 of their degree program. Industrial internships are designed to provide an opportunity for students to interact with real world problems and implement any taught procedures and/or activities. Students are prepared to perform specific tasks according to their year of study. Students shall be allocated proper training venues as a result of any of the following:
- Internship fairs held at BUE.
- Industrial contacts established by academic staff at their degree program.
- Industrial liaison committee at the faculty of engineering
- Any other personal contacts.
BUE students shall be treated during their internship programmes as on the job trainees whereby specific tasks shall be assigned to them as appropriate to their level of knowledge as indicated in the training profile.
It is the sole responsibility of students to seek knowledge and understanding of all matters underpinning their assigned tasks. Students shall collect complete information as appropriate to their training venue.
