In addition to the intensive training to mould a true Bosconian, In-Plant Training (IPT) is included in the Bachelor Program. It is composed of two (2) weeks of industrial visit during their second year and sixteen weeks (8 weeks each during their 3rd and 4th Years) of industry experience. This is to give the students a firsthand experience in the world of actual work by being indentured in the different companies around the National Capital District. On a case-to-case basis, students are allowed to go for their IPT outside of Port Moresby especially if they need to do their industry experience in their sponsoring companies.
