    Bond's Teaching methodology involves a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, examinations, projects, presentations, assignments, computer labs and industry projects.

    Work Experience and Internships

    Some students without practical workplace experience, or with workplace experience in a field different from their studies, choose to undertake an internship as part of their degree.
