This presentation showcases the development, implementation and outcomes to date of a work integrated learning (WIL) program for undergraduate students in a multidisciplinary built environment faculty. The disciplines represented include: architecture, interior design, industrial design, landscape architecture, urban and regional planning, construction management, property economics, quantity surveying, spatial science, civil engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and aerospace avionics. In this faculty context, the work integrated learning program situates academic learning and professional learning together within a work environment as a formal component of the student's course.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
