We are calling for ‘expressions of interest’ from students interested in undertaking a formal internship as part of their Engineering degree in Semester 1, 2016.
- Minimum high credit average (GPA of 5.5 is the lowest accepted)
- Sufficient university electives or ENGN electives to undertake a full-time internship (usually 18-24u) – this means undertaking an internship can be difficult for double degree students. (Exceptions to the 18-24 units electives rule may be considered for R&D students combining an internship with an R&D project, or students combining ENGN4200 with an internship.)
- Preferable (but not compulsory) to have completed ENGN3221
*Please note that places for international students are likely to be limited due to work permits and visa requirements of the placements
Our engineering internships (ENGN3200) are a flagship program and are different to work experience (ENGN3100). ENGN3200 is for credit (and incurs fees), involves placement with an organisation with whom the Research School of Engineering has negotiated an internship, and involves a number of deliverables. You will be graded for ENGN3200. If you undertake ENGN3200 you will be exempted from having to complete ENGN3100.
Potential internships exist with:
- Australian Mint
- Vast Solar
- Lithicon FEI
- Precision Lasers, Singapore
- ….and more
Expressions of interest should take the form of an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and should include your full name, university ID number and a statement addressing each of the requirements above. Please also include confirmation that an internship could fit in the normal degree requirements.
Expressions of interest must be submitted by 5pm Friday 17 October, 2015.
Shortlisted students will be invited for an interview with the academic convenor of the course. Selection will be based upon the above requirements but also on the suitability of students to represent the Research School of Engineering with industry.
