EEI would like to advise students that we are opening applications for our engineering and science internship program for the 2022 winter vacation period. The internship program will be run in compliance with appropriate health, hygiene, and social distancing policies to operate in a COVID safe manner. The safety of EEI’s staff, interns, and clients is our number one priority.

The Engineering Internship Program

In the interests of developing future engineers, EEI offer practical work experience to bright students. We facilitate the opportunity to learn more about being an engineer and complete your required vacation work hours by working with a capable multi-disciplinary team on a diverse range of projects.

The internship program is structured, with an aim to develop your skills to apply theoretical knowledge in practical situations, and to start your journey to become a good professional engineer.  Activities include, but are not limited to:

  • Participation in the research and development of innovative technologies
  • Introduction to the preparation of project proposals and tenders
  • Learning from senior members in engineering design and technical report writing
  • Opportunities for both site, laboratory and computer modelling experience, attending client meetings and developing your presentation skills (COVID-19 may limit the opportunities for site/face to face activities)

What We’re Looking For

  • Enthusiastic penultimate or final year students of a civil/chemical/environmental/mechanical engineering, chemistry, physics, environmental science or environmental management background
  • Motivation for excellence, working both individually and in a team, and a passion for creative thinking to solve engineering and science problems
  • A background knowledge of water chemistry, water and wastewater engineering, hydraulic engineering, soil sciences, software engineering or mechanical design (including drawing) would also be desirable but is not essential
  • Environmental engineering and environmental management students would be well suited for our current projects (but all disciplines are encouraged to apply)

Applications close on Monday the 20th of June, so please apply before then to ensure that you do not miss out. The program will run from the 27th of June to the 22nd of July. As this is a voluntary program, we are flexible with contact hours with an objective to achieve the best outcome for both parties.

To Apply

To apply, please submit a short cover letter (1 page maximum), resume and academic transcript to info@enviroengineers.com.au by 5 PM AWST on the 20th of June 2022.
