Mode of Delivery Field work/field study/on-the-job
Planned Learning Activities Project based learning

All FENS students are required to complete a summer project (PROJ 302) with a minimum duration of 8 weeks after 3rd year and to have a satisfactory (S) standing so as to receive their B.Sc. degrees. The main objectives of the the summer project are (i) to give the students a chance to gain first- hand working experience in an industrial setting, (ii) to enhance their technical and communications skills, (iii) to enable them to interact with engineers and technicians effectively. At the same time, the summer projects help the students' professional development. Students determine their internship companies/institutions based on their interests and programs they are enrolled. At the end of the project, students are required to prepare and submit a final project report and make a presentation. Students have to be enrolled in a FENS Diploma Programme in order to register for this course. See PROJ 302 guideline for further details.


The main objectives of the summer project are (i) to give the students a chance to gain first- hand working experience in industrial settings, (ii) to enable them to develop technical and communication skills needed (iii) to allow the students to interact with engineers and technicians in the industry.

Learning Outcome

Upon successful completion of Summer Project, students are expected to

- demonstrate the ability to interact with the colloquies with discretion and communicate efficiently and professionally with them, and develop and demonstrate professionalism in assigned responsibilities

- gain first-hand working experience in a industrial setting and be able to integrate the broad aspects of their theoretical knowledge into practice

-demonstrate management and leadership skills relevant to their field of study

-develop critical thinking skills in problem identification and solving and data analysis, and in recognizing the repercussion of their actions and decisions.

-demonstrate the ability to write clear, concise documentation and reports
