Abstract [en]

Surveying Engineering Education (SEE) programmes are often of three years and the students learn how to model the shape of the Earth's surface by specific instruments, applying mathematics and computer software. They are inherently practically-oriented and majority of their courses contain simulated practical assignments close to the job market. Work-integrated learning (WIL), which is an approach to intentionally involve learners with practical works so that the learn the concepts by using them, is a suitable for SEEs. Different WIL models such as simulated assignment, collaborative learning with help of industry, and cooperative education, are applicable in SEE, which can increase the students' self-confidence, motivation, academic performance, and employability potential in addition to prepare them for working environments. Here, the focus is on the cooperative education in SEE, which is done outside universities. Literatures about WIL lacks attention to SEEs, there is a need for more researches with focus on the state-of-the-actual in this subject rather to see challenges in the work placement of students in business-oriented private sectors. Our literature study and interviews of three graduates from three subsequent graduation years and two students having experience in work placement showed clear supports of the governmental organisations. However, some students experienced difficulties in private companies. The job has been stressful for them and they were sometimes used like labours. Making clear agreements with private companies, clarifying the roles and missions of the students and companies, covering the costs and compensating time are important factors, which need to be considered. Inviting active engineers from companies for performing simulated assignments close to reality at campus will be very helpful for preparing the students for work placement for practical parts of the courses. It is also recommended that cooperative education needs to be performed with a full supervision of university.
