The Engineering Internship Program

In the interests of developing future engineers and scientists, EEI offer 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, and computer modelling experience, attending client meetings, and developing your presentation skills.

What We’re Looking For

  • Enthusiastic penultimate or final year students studying civil/ chemical/ environmental/ mechanical engineering, chemistry, physics, environmental science, or environmental management.
  • 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, software engineering or mechanical design (including drawing) would be desirable but is not essential.
  • The summer internship program, running from November 20th to late February 2024, is voluntary. Given its voluntary nature, we maintain flexibility in contact hours, aiming to achieve the best outcomes for both parties.
