In developed countries, industry involvement with engineering education is a common approach for teaching and learning. For example in Australia, the John Holland Group has developed a strong relationship with Central Queensland University (CQUniversity) through their involvement in the university’s engineering co-op program. This program requires engineering students to undertake two paid, 6 months periods each, of work placement in their 3rd and 4th year study. John Holland is a consistent employer of CQUniversity undergraduates. In contrast most of the developing countries have little interaction with industry. In the developing countries, to provide quality engineering education, universities or educational institutions realize the importance of implementing practical engagement of final year engineering students into different engineering industries. In most of the developing countries it is a part of short training scheme and students used to attend the training scheme but there was no option to earn credit from this training. Nowadays, a long time practical engagement with industry, alternatively it is called industrial attachment/placement, is seen necessary as a requirement of the award of degree and students be given credit in their study program.
