Many people now agree that work-based learning has an important part to play in the development of learners. Structured Industrial Practice Studies (SIPS) is an example of a work-based learning approach in which students complement their instructional studies at university with short, structured periods in industry as part of their ongoing weekly activities. Describes this process which has been applied in the subject areas of applied physics and chemistry, the business element of manufacturing engineering and engineering in general.
