Winter Internship Opportunities for 2023

Winter Internship Opportunities for 2023

EEI would like to advise students that we are opening applications for our engineering and science internship program for the 2023 winter vacation period. We are looking for enthusiastic students of a civil/chemical/environmental/mechanical engineering, environmental science, chemistry, or physics background. 

The internship is a learning experience with exposure to a range of different industries including resources, agriculture, utilities, and manufacturing. You will get to learn directly from EEI’s experienced team in a supportive environment.

The Engineering Internship Program

In the interests of developing future engineers and scientists, EEI offers practical work experience to committed students. We facilitate the opportunity to learn more about the needs of industry 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 or scientist. 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 site visits, attending client meetings, and developing your presentation skills 

What We’re Looking For

  • Enthusiastic 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, environmental and soil sciences, or mechanical design (including drawing) would be desirable but is not essential. We encourage applications from students keen to learn new skills. 

  • Environmental engineering and environmental management students would be well suited for our current projects (but all disciplines are encouraged to apply) 

The winter internship program is voluntary and runs from the 19th of June to the 21st 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, please submit a short cover letter (1 page maximum), resume and academic transcript to by 5 PM AWST on the 2nd of June 2023. 

Please note: If shortlisted for the winter vacation program, an interview will be requested. We will organise a suitable time that considers your study commitments.
