dc.description.abstract This study aims to explore best practices for evidence-based policy in establishing and running robust engineering student industrial secondment (SIS) programs, coordinated between universities and industries. SIS programs applied to engineering can be a suitable approach for strengthening the linkages between engineering study, practice and employability. The unavailability or absence of records and records keeping, or weak access to institutional/industrial and employment records makes rigorous investigation a challenge. en
