This paper reports on a study of civil engineering students' perception of selected aspects of the experiential learning programme, which is a required component of the National Diploma programme. The findings indicate that the students usually found the work assignments given to them manageable and usually to be relevant to their professional growth. While they usually found there was a link between the courses covered at the technikon and the tasks performed, the former only moderately prepared them for the experiential learning. They rated the overall experiential learning programme as good.
