Can your business benefit from the enthusiasm, skills and fresh approach of future UTS Engineering graduates?
Hundreds of companies each year have welcomed the opportunity to host student interns across a range of engineering disciplines, providing a
flexible, cost effective resource solution while making a real impact on the education of the next generation of engineers.
The Industry Partnering Unit is currently seeking organisations to offer internships for the period July–December 2013 across all main engineering
disciplines of Civil, Mechanical, Mechanical and Mechatronics, Electrical, Biomedical and ICT. With over 300 students actively seeking an internship and an opportunity to contribute to your business, this is an exceptional opportunity to help shape the future generation of engineers.
One company to have benefited from the program is Siemens Ltd, who have hosted 43 UTS Engineering interns over the last 9 years, and have gone on to employ a number of these interns on graduation.
“UTS students have a unique advantage – they gain a wealth of real-world experience during their internships”, said Pete Thompson, Operations Manager, Siemens Ltd (Energy Sector, Instrumentation and Electrical). “[They] really stand out among graduates and are ready to make a serious contribution to any organisation when they graduate.”
UTS students complete two six-month full time placements as part of their degree, which provides the host company with additional resources to
complete specific tasks or projects and improve processes whilst giving them the opportunity to “try before they buy” and identify future employees before they enter the job market. Organisations also report great benefits from the program in terms of professional development for their existing staff as a result of opportunities for them to mentor interns.
