In 2015, The University of Western Australia, the Australian Council of Engineering Deans, CingleVue International, Curtin University, Engineers Australia, Murdoch University, and The University of Queensland received an innovation and development grant from the Australian Government Office for Learning and Teaching to develop, test and establish virtual work integrated learning for engineering students.


This project will complement opportunities for engineering students to learn about engineering practice. Using existing and new immersive simulated sites, we will develop and test virtual work integrated learning experiences for students. Students will complete authentic engineering work by visiting an immersive learning environment that simulates an engineering site, working remotely with students from other universities, receiving feedback from industry-based engineers, and reflecting individually and with other student groups.
