Business description:

We design/manufacture of all components of a launch vehicle (rocket) system. These include but are not limited to; metallic and composite components (carbon fiber etc), aerodynamic design, energetics (propellant), guidance systems (mechanisms and technology to guide a rocket), ground station (tracking/communications/control/monitoring etc) and aerothermodynamics.

Projects / tasks:

Interns will have the opportunity to participate in projects across the variety of engineering specialties around the design/manufacture of all components of a launch vehicle (rocket) system. These include but are not limited to; metallic and composite components (carbon fiber etc), aerodynamic design, energetics (propellant), guidance systems (mechanisms and technology to guide a rocket), ground station (tracking/communications/control/monitoring etc) and aerothermodynamics.

Technical skills

Basic CAD skills, basic programming skills and/or basic understanding of electronic design.

Intern interpersonal qualities:

Good written and oral communication, as well as developed collaboration skills required.

Business description:

We are a leading supplier of high-quality energy and specialised engineering solutions in Australia and select international markets. Our purpose-built production, R&D and Engineering facilities are located at the heart of the naval shipbuilding in Australia. These new facilities represent a significant investment in submarine battery capability and capacity that will enable the next generation of systems to provide superior results for our customers.

Projects / tasks:

We will establish projects within our existing projects to suit the candidate, so someone who likes a variety of work rather than wanting to be a specialist is probably important. We will have mechanical, chemical engineers/chemists, electrical/electronic and systems design work.

Projects may include:

• Design, build and testing of new battery probes.

• Mechanical design of battery components.

Technical skills:

Nothing specific, however an interest in submarine batteries is ideal.

Intern interpersonal qualities:

Reliable and trustworthy

Business description:

A long-standing Defence contractor, supporting key Defence aviation, maritime and land capabilities through our specialised engineering, manufacturing, maintenance, materials processing, and supply chain management functions. We are renowned for our key commitments to Defence, including:

  1. Manufacturing landing gear and hydraulic components for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program.
  2. Design and implementation of repairs for aircraft landing gear systems, and other aircraft functional components.
  3. Design and implementation of Supersonic Particle Deposition & Laser Additive Deposition (Additive Metal) repairs for aircraft landing gear systems

We provide engineering interns with a unique opportunity to gain experience in the range of technologies we use to effectively sustain Defence’s aerospace, maritime and land capabilities including:

  • Design and implementation of precision manufacturing and maintenance tasks;
  • Non-destructive testing;
  • Corrosion protection and surface finishing;
  • Design of Traditional and Additive Material repairs including the state-of-the-art metallic repair techniques Supersonic Particle Deposition and Laser Additive Deposition.

Projects / tasks:

1. Design of tooling, fixtures, masking aides and jigs.
2. Establishing and maintaining ERP data and routings.
3. Support of the facility through machine and chemical solution maintenance.
4. Procurement of technical materials and resources.

Technical skills:

Some CATIA experience is highly desirable.

Intern interpersonal qualities:

An intern that would thrive with us is an aspiring engineer with the following characteristics:

  • Enthusiastic, curious and willing to get involved;
  • Team player, but able to work autonomously on tasks;
  • Maintain a focus on safety at all times; and
  • Excited to explore Defence engineering as a possible career.

A mechanical, industrial and chemical engineering degree would be well suited. The ideal Engineering Intern is a person who seeks to understand new technologies and processes, and use that understanding to sustain and improve engineering, maintenance, and manufacturing performance.
