Background of Work-Integrated Education

Work-Integrated Education (hereafter WIE) is a mandatory component in the curriculum of our UGC-funded 4-year undergraduate degree programmes or 2-year full-time articulation degree programme.  This education is intended to foster students with more exposure and hands-on working experience, thus have a better eventual university-to-work transition.  On completion, students will be able to demonstrate one or more of the following WIE learning outcomes:

  • appropriate knowledge, skills and techniques necessary for programme-related professions, or commitment in the role of programme-related professional; 
  • competency and effectiveness in delivering professional performance, or high ethical standards in the professional attributes; 
  • effective communication or information management skills, or critical thinking, analytical ability and entrepreneurship or leadership;
  • care and concern for the community by promoting and participating in professional and community activities at a local, national and international level.

WIE Requirement

Students are required to complete 2 training credits, each equivalent to 60 working hours. A completion of at least 120 working hours of full-time/part-time WIE training before graduation is needed. Virtual internship is not accepted as WIE fulfillment in our Department.

The Pre-WIE training, offered by SAO, aims to cultivate students’ good work ethics and behavior. It is mandatory for ABCT students to attend the training before the commencement of WIE internships. Students can attend the online Pre-WIE Training via Blackboard and complete the quiz after reading all materials in semester 2 of each academic year. Prior approval from WIE coordinator is also required before the commencement of WIE internships.
