Defence Engineering Internship Program – Engineering Work Placement

Once again an exciting opportunity exists for 3rd and 4th year engineering students and Small to Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) to participate in the fifth round of the Defence Engineering Internship Program (DEIP), sponsored by the Department of Defence.

DEIP has proven to increase engineering students’ interest in the defence industry, particularly with SMEs. From 2012 to 2015, DEIP paired 30 selected engineering students each year with defence industry SMEs from around Australia with outstanding results. The national program will continue in 2016 with internships for another 30 engineering students. To be eligible for the internship, students must be Australian citizens, eligible for a security clearance and studying an engineering degree with an Australian university.

DEIP provides Australian defence SMEs with the opportunity to market defence industry as an innovative, interesting and viable career path to engineering students who undertake a sponsored work placement in their firm.

Eligible students are invited to submit an application to be considered for a 12-week placement with a defence focused SME. Successful applicants will be remunerated at the rate of $700 per completed week for the 12 weeks of placement. Only 30 positions are available nationally.

Placements are managed by AITEC, an experienced educational project management organisation, and the Australian Industry and Defence Network (AIDN).

Applications close: Monday 25 April 2016
