Work-integrated education (WIE) provides an excellent context for students to understand and extend their knowledge through workplace experience. These include a broad understanding of the operation and requirement of real world businesses. It will also provide an opportunity for students to understand employers’ expectations, enhance their interpersonal and communication skills, thus actualizing the PolyU’s motto of “To learn and to apply, for the benefit of mankind”.
The minimum duration of WIE of this programme is three weeks or 120 hours, this is equivalent to 2 training credits which will not be counted towards the Grade Point Average (GPA). Unless approved by the WIE Officer, students should normally have finished their WIE training in the summer after they have completed Stage Two of the programme.
WIE / internship programme is a win-win partnership, which would offer our students the opportunity to acquire work-based learning, while providing employers with efficient and effective channels to hunt for competent students as interns and permanent employees.
