AND

ENGINEERING

PRINCIPLES FOR ENGINEERING PRACTICE



1.

Students of Engineering Departments,

Epoka University, in
order t
o quality for B.S
(Engineering
) degree, are required to complete a minimum of
3
0 workdays

industrial
Engineering practice in addition to their regular courses and laboratory work


2.

The year for practice, its duration
,

subject to be covered
, time to

be spent on each topic
selected for the summer practice are specified by the department concerned


3.

Each department has
an

“Engineering Practice Advisory Committee” including at least one
member of teaching staff. Members of the committee are selected by t
he department
chairman. This committee administers the department’s summer practice affairs reporting
to the department chairman.


4.

The Faculty of Engineering has a “Faculty Engineering Practice Board” that meets when
necessary. This board is composed of an
d advisor from all departments that have such a
committee. They meet under chairmanship of the Dean or one of his assistants and ensure
that the engineering practice producers are performed according to methods common to
the departments.


5.

Each student is r
esponsible for finding a working place for himself that is acceptable to his
department, and for completing his engineering work in a satisfactory manner. The
engineering practice vacancies of department,
on the
other hand, are distributed to the
prospecti
ve students by the departments engineering practice advisors giving priorities in
order of graduation status academic achievement, and the use of the previous engineering
practice assignments, or by drawing lots.


6.

Students who find their own working places

must submit to the departmental committee,

before starting, satisfactory information about their work place, and should obtain their
approval. For places for which approval has not been obtained, responsibility rests with the
students.


7.

All the students
can do their practice inside or outside Alb
ania everywhere
they want
.


8.

Each student to start work should obtain an “Engineering Practice Journal”. In this journal
there is general information about engineering work and necessar
y forms are given. The
studen
t
records daily all the work he has performed during the work duration according to
the departme
nt engineering practice
program
, and later passes all these records into the
notebook in accordance with “Essentials of Engineering Practice Report”. The studen
t
submits the report to the committee during, registration period of semester, following
engineering practice. This date may be delayed for sometime by the advisory committee.
Those students who do not submit reports at the end of this period are considere
d not to
have done their practice. In addition to this report departments
may ask for documents
covering,
other information about their work. Reports of students who satisfactory
complete their practice. Are returned to them.






9.

If a student
has not written

his reports to acceptable standards and if his practice was
satisfactory, he is asked to improve the report within two weeks. Those students who do
not hand in the required report within this period, or those whole reports are rejected, are
required to re
peat this Engineering practice.


10.


Each student, at the start of the engineering
practice is required to deliver to the employer
the engineering training performance forms, marked “confidential” in the journal. At the
end of the practice, one of these forms

is sent directly to the department advisory
committee by registered post. The student is responsible for ensuring this. The other copy
is retained in the employer’s files.


11.

The student who
gets an (F) average on his performance report, or who has (F) for
the
attendance status, is required to report the engineering practice.


12.

The
record of each student who satisfactorily completes his work is sent by the
Department to the Registrar’s Office where it is entered into his University record


13.

The first summer
practice is required to be a field practice and the second one to be a
design office practice.


14.

Students
should apply to the department summer practice coordinators for questions and
problems regarding the summer practice.


15.

Students are recommended to
consult the department summer practice coordinators
before formally applying a company for summer practice. The department summer
practice coordinators may contact the company if needed.


16.

The students are obliged to identify the company in which they will
perform the summer
practice. An acceptance letter from the company should be submitted
to the department
within the specified deadline. The acceptance letter should clearly state the company’s
name, field of activity, and contact address and it has to be s
ubmitted before the beginning
of the final exams.




















ESSENTIAL
S

1.

The report should be in accordance with the requirements of
the engineering practice
program

and engineering practice principles


2.

The report must be in
English and printed in ink, or typed. If typed, the typed pages must be

attached to the blank pages of the journal

and the total number of page should not be less
than 25
-
30 pages.


3.

The main
headings are

to be centered and written in block letters. The sub
titles must be in
small capitals and underscored. Drawings should conform to acceptable engineering
standards


4.

Each report should contain the following sections:

a.

Table of c
ontents with corresponding page numbers.


b.

Descriptions of the organizations where
the engineering training took place:


-

Name of Organization

-

Structure of the Organization

-

Location of the Organization

-

Number of technical persons employed

-

Number of engineers employed

-

Main sphere of activity

-

Brief history of the organization

-

First
-

cost

analysis (labor, energy, depreciates, unit


cost, sale price, etc)


c.

Introductions: In this section the
following, should be presented.

Briefly: Purpose and scope of the engineering practice




d.

Main Text of Report: In this section everything that has been

done and
observed
in

the organization should be explained in full detail, taking into consideration
the program outlined by each department for the second and third year student.
The data, tables and diagrams should be numbered and placed in the appendix.


e.

Conclusion: In this section the student should assess the experience gained as a
result of the engineering practice. Discussion of the
technical operation of the
organization and suggestions should also
be
included.


f.

References (If any)


g.

Appendix X
:

All the data, tables and drawing should be placed in this section.
