Enhance your resume

Throughout a given career, many trained engineers many who have completed work experience at some stage move on to other sectors by utilising skills acquired through multi-faceted projects. Engineers are present at banks, investment funds, not-for-profit sectors, finance, trading, entrepreneurship, general management, management consulting, strategy advisory, private equity, public administration, and defence industries.

Permanent position

Our engineering internships in Australia take students and graduates one step closer to the hidden job market and business network. By interning in the engineering sector, candidates will collaborate with a team to contribute to work on hand-on projects. As such, interns will gain relevant work experience that will help with their professional career post-graduation.

Hone your speciality

Engineering internships are a great way to gain invaluable real work experience and hone into your speciality. For students interested in engineering, internships can be both a learning experience as well as an opportunity to try your hand at the industry first-hand. By engaging in engineering internships, participants will make connections and open themselves up to new opportunities that can further develop their engineering specialities. Internship positions often provide flexible hours, allowing for the best of both worlds; a chance to get career-building hands-on experience while still pursuing studies.

Over the years the engineering profession has transformed significantly, with diverse teams working across different geographies. Embracing workplace diversity has been widely adopted and accepted across the industry with gender equality reaching all time heights. This is an amazing time to consider engineering internships, particularly for young, ambitious students and graduates who are looking to broaden their skills and mindsets. This is a great platform to leap into your career.
